Join the Castlegar Making Spirits Bright challenge

Go all out with your Christmas decorating and send us a photo to enter

Looking for a way to spread some holiday cheer around Castlegar? Then join the Making Spirits Bright challenge.

Castlegar News, the City of Castlegar and FortisBC are partnering together to encourage Castlegar to share some cheer by going the extra mile in your outdoor Christmas decorating this year.

To participate in the challenge, post a photo of your house along with your address on either the Castlegar News or City of Castlegar’s Making Spirits Bright Facebook posts or send it by email to editor@castlegarnews.com.

Santa will drive by and inspect the top entries on Sunday evening, Dec. 13 and select the winners. Prizes will be awarded for the best decorated house and the most creative decorations. Prizes include a Napoleon P500 BBQ and gift certificate from Kootenay Market courtesy of FortisBC and a basket of Castlegar goodies courtesy of the Winterfest Committee.

Winners will be announced in the Christmas Eve edition of the Castlegar News.

Castlegar’s traditional Winterfest celebration was cancelled this year due to COVID-19 and the organizers hope this challenge will help bring back some of the cheer that is missing during these trying times.
