The City of Mission wants the public to enjoy some Holiday Magic!
On Saturday afternoon (Dec. 10) the doors at the Mission Leisure Centre will be open for free, family-friendly activities to kick off the holiday season.
From ice skating to swimming to crafts, hot chocolate and singing, Holiday Magic! is an opportunity to spend time with friends and family at the start of the holiday season. The event will feature roving performers and even Santa Claus will make an appearance.
“The cancellation of this year’s Candlelight Parade meant losing a chance to celebrate the season with neighbours,” said Mayor Paul Horn.
“Fortunately, our staff, partners and volunteers have been resourceful and have come up with another way for us to share the holidays as a community. If we see a strong turnout, Holiday Magic! could become an annual experience, so we are hoping to see everyone there.”
