Christmas in the Valley is tonight
The holiday season kicks off tonight in Smithers with the annual Christmas in the Valley event.
Chair of the Main Street Merchants Corina Brewer says the events start at Bovill Square.
“Santa Claus will be there, kids can come and get their pictures taken with him,” she says. “There will also be cookies and music and trees for kids to decorate. That’s happening from 4-6 and then the big light up takes place at 6.”
Horse and wagon rides will also take place and the fire department will be handing out hot chocolate and hotdogs.
Most stores in the downtown core will be open late and offering plenty of deals.
