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.”
The party will still begin at 12 p.m. and carry on until 4 p.m. with music, food, Kidzone activities and shopping. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and community photo will also still take place, so please come out with your bikes, strollers or rollerblades to proceed down Columbia Avenue.
The schedule for the ribbon-cutting and photo remains as:
2 pm – head to Columbia Ave and St. Paul intersection (Alpine Grind area)
2:20pm – ribbon-cutting ceremony at Columbia Ave and St. Paul
2:20 – 2:30 – community procession down Columbia Ave – bring your wheels –

2:30 – history is made – a community photo it taken near Harry Lefevre Square
