Twentieth Winterfest stirs up holiday spirit

Castlegar held its twentieth annual Winterfest on Friday.



Encouraged by the warmer weather and promises of a great parade people in boots and toques expectantly lined Columbia Ave. Friday night. Castlegar celebrated its twentieth Winterfest with music, choir performances, lights, parade floats and community spirit. Following the parade, children lined up to visit and receive a good bag from Santa and Mrs. Clause.
