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.”

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.
