Children’s winter festival coming to Blueberry

Blueberry Creek Community School to host a children's winter festival November 27 and 28.

Blueberry Creek Community School will be hosting a Children’s Winter Festival and Market on November 27 and 28. The event is sponsored by Trowelex and is intended to be a fundraiser for the organization, therefore a small $2 entrance fee will be charged for admission.

The exterior of the building will be illuminated by new LED lights supplied by FORTIS BC. Inside the building, the winter wonderland theme will continue with a space set up for stories and music, face painting, pictures and role play. Children will also have the opportunity to make seasonal crafts. The gym will be set up as a child themed market with vendors including Scholastic Books, Craft toys and Purdy’s Chocolate plus children’s clothing, accessories, candles and more.

The school will be putting its community kitchen to work to serve seasonal goodies and warm treats. To keep with the winter theme, characters from Frozen will be mingling with the crowd adding to the festive, magical atmosphere.

All this will happen to the backdrop of music, decorations, laughter and the camaraderie and community feeling that is prevalent at BCCS,” said Rebecca McDonnell, community liaison for Blueberry Creek Community School.

BCCS is still celebrating the official acquisition of the property from School District 20, but with new ownership comes new responsibilities. McDonnell reports that the school is currently operating in a deficit for this year. “We need to increase the general revenue, so fundraising will become a more common part of the society’s undertakings,” said McDonnell. “We need to get rid of that deficit.” Funds raised from the Winter Festival will go towards the general operating revenue and the completion of renovations of the youth room, a space that will be used for after school care programs for grades K-7 and summer camps.
