Chestnuts and Carols coming to the Museum at Campbell River

The youngsters from RainCoast Creative Performing Arts will be back again at the Museum at Campbell River’s Chestnuts and Carols Dec. 10.

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire….”

To many this is just be a song lyric, but once again this year the Museum at Campbell River is presenting Chestnuts and Carols, where you can come try hot chestnuts roasted on site by the Italian Cultural Society.

Chestnuts will be available starting at 1p.m., and enjoy these tasty treats while listening to a live performance of accordion music.

Starting at 2 p.m., RainCoast Creative Performing Arts students will be providing the “carols” part of the event.

This year, the group of local musical theatre students will be dressed in their finest and will perform a selection of Christmas favourites.

Each year these students have been performing to a packed house at the Museum, and Chestnuts and Carols has become a fun family event that people come back to year after year.

After the performance kids can look forward to a visit from Santa Clause, as well as hot cider and yummy goodies.

This is a free family event that is a part of the Museum’s Festival of Trees and takes place Dec. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.
