The community is invited to come out on December 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to enjoy winter games and warm treats in a beautiful setting overlooking Columbia Lake.

Everyone should come prepared to stay warm and have fun! Guests of all ages are encouraged to bring equipment to play hockey, skate, cross-country ski, snowshoe, sled or just hang out around a bonfire.

Guests will also be treated to complimentary hotdogs and beverages.

A limited number of trees will be made available to cut for home Christmas Trees. The select trees are a legacy of a Christmas tree farm that operated on the property in the 1970s. At the time the property was known as Santa’s Forest. Guests wanting to harvest a tree should bring any tools required to cut and transport their tree.

Where: Meet at Grand View Road at 11 a.m.

What to bring: warm clothes, winter sport equipment, tree cutting supplies How: To RSVP (in case of cancellation) and to get a map, contact [email protected] or 250-342-5521.

The Winter Celebration is generously sponsored by Kicking Horse Coffee, Konig Meat & Sausage Company and The Invermere Bakery.
