LED lighting and decorations wanted

Even though Christmas is more than two months away, the Rimbey Santa Night committee is already hard at work

Even though Christmas is more than two months away, the Rimbey Santa Night committee is already hard at work, planning to make this year’s traditional event bigger, better and more brightly lit than ever.

Recreation director and committee member Rick Krekelwich said the committee is looking for donations of LED lights and used Christmas decorations.

“We want to decorate the park to look as bright and colorful as possible,” said Kreklewich. “We want it to look really good and that is why we need as many lights and decorations as possible.”

The park, when lit up at Christmas, has a magical appearance that adds to any seasonal festivity. The twinkling lights and decorations seem to make the historic buildings and the park, itself, come alive with romance, adventure and fun.

Santa Night is to be held Dec. 7 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will feature carolers, wagon rides, hot chocolate and hotdogs and, of course, the jolly old elf, himself, Santa Claus.

Santa Night, a long time tradition in Rimbey, attracts many families throughout the area and definitely adds to the festive spirit of the holiday season.

Anyone who has LED lights and/or used Christmas decorations they wish to donate may contact Rick at the recreation office at 403-843-3151 or Cheryl at Pas Ka Poo Park at 403-843-2004.
