Princeton is lighting up for Christmas on December 1

The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the annualChristmas Light Up and Santa’s visit.

Decorations, seasonal music, wagon rides and a visit with Santa will begin the holiday festivities in Princeton Saturday, Dec. 1., from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the annualChristmas Light Up and Santa’s visit.

At 4 p.m., in Veterans Square, light up will begin with Princeton youth and various entertainers. Santa will be available for visits with children (and an opportunity to purchase a photo)—while you wait enjoy popcorn and hot chocolate.

Take a wagon ride throughout the downtown core. There will be stops at Veterans Square, Princeton Plaza and on Bridge Street at The Source.

Enjoy the fire pits, goodies and entertainment provided at each of the stops.

All groups, organizations, businesses and societies are invited and encouraged to participate in the Christmas Tree Competition. Call the Chamber, 250-295-3103 to register.

The Wiener Dog Race is on again this year! If you have a Wiener dog and want to participate, please give Kathy at the Legion a call. 250-295-6060

Along with the Christmas 2012 celebrations, the Chamber is also hosting the Shop Local Passport Program.

Passports will be available in participating stores during light up and may be stamped until the end of business day on December 15. With each $5 spent, participants receive one stamp on their passport and when filled, it may be entered into the draw at participating merchants.

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes of a gift basket and Princeton Cash awarded to the winners. Princeton Cash can only be spent at participating stores.

Winners will be drawn during the regular meeting of Council on Dec. 17 and then announced in the Similkameen Spotlight.

Watch for passport information in the Nov. 28 edition of The Spotlight.

Remember, during light up on Dec. 1, for every $5 purchase you make from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. – you will receive double stamps on your passport.
