West Kelowna twinkles on Sunday

The annual Winterfest, Christmas Light-Up and West Kelowna birthday celebrations are being held together for the first time at the Mount Boucherie Community Centre on Sunday, December 2.

All events are free, although donations of non-perishable food items for the Westside Community Foodbank would be greatly appreciated.

Winterfest celebrations have been held at the Mt. Boucherie Community Centre for more than a decade, however, Christmas Light-Up festivities had been held at Fire Hall No. 31 on Old Okanagan Highway until now.

The Light-Up is moving to the Mt. Boucherie Community Centre to provide one convenient and central location with plenty of parking for this seasonal celebration.

Winterfest will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and offer a free lunch with hot dogs from Save On Foods, and Tim Hortons coffee, hot chocolate and Timbits, while supplies last.

The event will also feature free public skating from 10 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Crafts, cookie and face painting stations will be open from 10 to 3 and a kid’s hockey skills competition will run from 2 to 4:30.

Parents must call Westside Minor Hockey at 250-769-1543 to pre-register for the skills competition.

Santa will make a special guest appearance during Winterfest.

You may also visit the Recreation and Culture Department at 2760 Cameron Road to pick up a schedule or call 778-797-8800 for more information.

The Christmas Light-Up will be held from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Holiday lights will be turned on at dusk in the courtyard in front of Royal LePage Place arena.

Those attending will be invited to sing Christmas carols and have cupcakes in celebration of the District of West Kelowna’s fifth birthday.
