Getting in the holiday spirit in Fraser Valley this weekend

Christmas-themed events taking place from Chilliwack to Hope

It will be difficult not to get into the Christmas spirit after this weekend, with holiday events taking place from Chilliwack to Hope.

Saturday is a big day, that starts with the 4th Annual Breakfast with Santa at Harrison Memorial Hall, presented by the Harrison Hot Springs Preschool and After School Care Program, and the Village. Kids of all ages will meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the morning. There will be two seatings for breakfast, one at 9 a.m. and another at 10:30 a.m. The cost of admission is $5 for one person, or $20 for five people.

There will be a grand prize of an iPad 2, and tickets are available at Oasis in Agassiz, or by calling 604-796-8738.

Also on Saturday, stop by the Agassiz Agricultural Centre for the Lions Annual Craft Sale.

Doors open to the public at 10 a.m.

The Harrison Christmas Crawl is also being held this weekend, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Eight venues are participating in the crawl, which asks participants to take a “passport” to each stop along the way. A treat is offered at each stop, and a grand prize worth $500 will be won at the end of the weekend.

In Hope, everyone is invited to the Sunshine Ladies Christmas Carol Sing-Along at the Hope Station House. That starts at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 4 and will include a live nativity scene performed by St. Anthony’s Youth Group.

This is the weekend that people will be asked to “Stuff the Cruiser”  in Agassiz.

Local RCMP will be parked at the Agassiz Super Valu from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, collecting items for the Agassiz Harrison food bank.

The Stuff the Cruiser event in Hope is scheduled for December 11 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Cooper’s Foods located at 559 Old Hope Princeton Way. The Boston Bar event will be held on December 10 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Kal Tire located at 48075 Trans Canada Highway.

Saturday night will also be the Santa Claus Parade in downtown Chilliwack, which gets underway around 7 p.m.
