Coldstream celebrates festive season

The 12th annual Christmas Light Up at Coldstream Christian Church takes place at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Coldstream is lighting up the season Sunday with an annual tradition.

The community celebrates with its 12th annual Christmas Light Up at Coldstream Christian Church at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Along with entertainment galore, the evening aims to bring neighbours together in the spirit of the season.

“There will be hot dogs, popcorn, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, Christmas cookie decorating, door prizes and it’s all for free,” said church pastor David Hockley.

“We do ask you bring a donation of food or money for the Salvation Army Food Bank.”

There will be music from the Kidston Elementary School, Andrew Mercer and the Okanagan Celtic Choir, the Coldstream Christian Church Choral Group and Karissa Waddell.

“Other highlights include Farmer Val and her petting zoo, activities with the Vernon Vipers, Queen Silver Star royalty and candidates, a live nativity, the Coldstream Fire Department and their giant fire pit and of course the annual countdown to the giant Christmas tree lighting up.”

Coldstream Christian Church is on Kalamalka Road across from the Coldstream municipal office.

Everyone is welcome in the community to attend the festivities.
