Ok I know it is a little early for me to be writing about Christmas, but is it? It seems the season has been creeping up on us and it is just four weeks away and today is the opening of the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!!!! Our staff has been busy with festival preparations for a few weeks now and all is falling into place! The intelligent light park is finally ready for tonight and the Christmas village in the Santa Claus Park will be ready December 1st. A new tradition for this year will be the addition of a night time “Parade of Lights Santa Claus Parade” on December 1st. if you know of anyone who would like to add a float please contact the Town of Bay Roberts @ 786 2126.
Bay Roberts Christmas Chalet
Our Visitor’s Pavilion is starting to look festive again this year (thanks Lois, Fraser and staff) . Our hours are going to change this year to accommodate those who would like to take their families up there in the late afternoon and early evening. This facility is a Christmas gem in our community, please take the time to visit and enjoy the decorations.
We are blessed with so many events going on during our festival. I would be remiss if I did not mention the Nativity Collection at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints , it is amazing, please take the time to drop in and view the displays from all over the world. I am also delighted to inform you about the Live Nativity that will be taking place December 20th at the Salvation Army it is a Christmas tradition you will not want to miss.
It is impossible for me to mention all the events going on, all of them are special so here is the link to our community calendar. http://www.calendarwiz.com/calendars/calendar.php?crd=bayroberts&&jsenabled=1&winh=490&winw=1024&inifr=false
Take the opportunity to browse the many events and services and plan to be part of our celebrations here in Bay Roberts.
New to my blog posts this year I have two pages added to the top of the page for more posting of pictures, quick posts and polls on Christmas. Please visit often and take part in the fun polls. If you have any suggestions on topics for polls please send them along.
