Christmas Lamp Parade and tree light up Dec. 16 in Barriere

No Christmas parade – Christmas Lantern Parade isntead

For all those area folks who have been wondering if Barriere will be having a Christmas parade this year it looks like the answer is no.

However, a community-minded volunteer has stepped forward to organize a Lantern Parade on Friday. Dec. 16 starting at 6 p.m. in conjunction with the annual Christmas tree light up in Fadear Park at the Bandshell.

The District of Barriere, North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre, and the Barriere grade 7 class are partnering on this event.

The grade 7 class will be hosting a concession, there will be plenty of family fun, and there will also be a bonfire on site.  For more info contact Ellen at the District of Barriere 250-672-9751.
