Rekindle will light up Rossland Saturday

Get ready for another year of Christmas cheer, carolling, dancing, a dash of snow, bonfires and of course, Santa.

City workers lift Rossland’s downtown Christmas tree Monday as the city prepares for Rekindle the Spirit of Christmas this Saturday.

It’s time to get back into that Christmas spirit, and what better way then a celebration of just that. The 19th Annual Rekindle the Spirit of Christmas is this Saturday, Dec. 1 in Rossland. The Rossland Chamber of Commerce is putting on the event.

Renee Clark from the Rossland Chamber hopes everyone comes out to celebrate the yuletide season.  Rossland will light up with fantastic festive events, holiday cheer and amazing shopping deals.

Join the Christmas merriment with all sorts of surprises. Wave to Santa at 1 p.m. Santa will meet all the little ones by the Rossland Public Library at 1:30 p.m. to be followed by a parade down Columbia Avenue, and finishing off with photos at the Rossland Public Library.

There will be a chance to exchange old incandescent lights and for LED strands with Fortis. You can do so at the Rekindle Outdoor Market from 11 a.m. onwards but arrive early as it is first come first serve!

You can be sure to pick up that special something on your Christmas list and don’t forget to pick up your Christmas tree from the Red Mountain Racers beside Rossland Hardware.

Peruse the Rekindle Outdoor Market on Queen Street for that something special. Space is limited for vendors to participate but should enquire at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce for further information and details if interested in being involved.

Santa will rejoin the crowd at Harry Lefevre Square at 4:30 p.m. for the lighting of the Christmas tree and the draw for the coveted Rekindle Gift Basket!

For a complete schedule of events, please check www.bhubble.com or www.rossland.com/home as it will be updated frequently.

If your business would like to participate, please contact Renee at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce.
