Downtown celebration postponed in Rossland

As a result of the recent heavy snowfall and a delay in construction, the Downtown Rossland Celebration will be held on Nov. 3.

As a result of the recent heavy snowfall and a delay in the final phases of construction, the Downtown Rossland Celebration will now be held on Nov. 3.

“Although it was a difficult decision to reschedule, we want to ensure a safe and completed downtown for all to enjoy,” Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom said. “There are only a few final touches to be added, but we feel it’s prudent to wait until Nov. 3.”
