Mark your calendars!

Christmas is less than seven weeks away and the merchants at the Junction Shopping Mall are inviting everyone to kick off the season at its second annual Moonlight Madness on Friday, Nov. 16 from 7 to 11 p.m.

While the event is organized by the Junction Mall Business Association, it is more than a night of shopping specials (and there will be lots) — it’s an occasion to celebrate community, families, and love through the holidays.

Part of the parking lot near Canadian Tire and Save On Foods will be closed to traffic to make way for Mission’s giant Christmas tree, which will be lit by the mayor at 7 p.m.

The 20-foot tree is coming from the municipal forest and will be decorated with bright, colourful lights, supplied by Canadian Tire.

Santa Claus will also be on location to help launch this year’s Mission Community Service Christmas Bureau and the season of giving.

The Christmas Bureau office will be at unit 308 at the Junction (between the dental office and Urban Planet).  Come check it out, make a donation or offer to volunteer.

The office will be open and accepting registrations from Nov. 19 to Dec. 7, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations can be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the same days.

Come early and stay late to take advantage of the specials at participating stores and enjoy the family friendly activities and contests.

Everyone wins a prize when they spin the roulette wheel and the Mission Elks will be there with its trailer and goodies and all donations received will go to the Christmas Bureau.

Other activities include:

• Kids Zone, 7:15 to 8 p.m.

• Ugly Christmas sweater or tie contest, 8:30 to 9 p.m.

• Mission Junction Idol singing contest from 9 to 10:30 p.m. To participate in this event, you must register at Mr. Mike’s restaurant the week before. There will be trophies for the winners.

Check back here next week for more Moonlight Madness information.
