Miracle on Mackenzie!
Festivities on First and a Miracle on Mackenzie! Downtown Revelstoke, Saturday December 10th from 3pm-5:00pm is where the magic happens! This year, a new and exciting day is being created for the children of Revelstoke!
What is Christmas about? Well, that depends who you ask. It’s different for everyone. We all have our fun traditions during the holiday season that we hold near and dear to our hearts. Whether it is sitting by a window and looking at the snow talking to your Mom, Reading stories and baking a Gingerbread house with Grandma and Grandpa; Dads ugly sweater or tie he wears every year that he thinks is hilarious, volunteering and giving back to the community or maybe it’s some special time you take for yourself to reflect on the ones that you love; we all have our cherished moments.
The Miracle on Mackenzie is an event that focuses on those moments! Of course it has some bright lights, Horse & Sleigh, and of course a visit from St. Nicholas himself & his better half Mrs. Claus! How will they arrive? Well, that is the secret; there is an important message on how they find each other! The Clauses will need help from the children of Revelstoke…but that’s all we can hint at!
The Elevation Dance Academy will be out to showcase their amazing talents, the Community Band & The Revelstoke Children’s Choir will be working together to create that perfect holiday score; Joanne Stacey, Charlene Foisy & Janine Carey-Bourke will be performing their wonderful music, Steve Smith will be joining us, The Begbie Elementary Choir and Arrow Heights students will have Christmas Poems!
Many groups will be helping out; The Grad Class of RSS, Tim Hortons will be providing free Hot Chocolate and Coffee for the onlookers, Southside will be giving away goodies, People’s Drug Mart & The Girl Guides will be teaming up with Conversations Coffee House to make a Kidz Craft Corner at Conversations, and The Roxy Theatre will be playing a Christmas Story at 6pm! “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out, Kid!”
We will light up our downtown core; we will have a beautiful Christmas tree to be lit up thanks to The Revelstoke Credit Union that will be the RCU Community Spirit Tree!!
