Christmas is coming to the Museum at Campbell River

December is an exciting time of the year at the Museum at Campbell River.

The month kicks off with Christmas at the Museum on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 1 to 4 p.m. The exhibits will be decorated for the season, and there will be musical performances in the logging gallery by the Campbell River Singers. There will be Christmas stories and crafts, a scavenger hunt, and a chance to write a letter to Santa.

From 1 to 2:30 p.m., the Museum’s Lego collection will be out and kids of all ages can help decorate the Lego tree as part of the Festival of Trees. At 2:30 p.m. Santa will arrive and there will be Santa photos by donation until 3:30 p.m. Entrance to this event is by minimum $2 donation.

Also on Dec. 1 is the opening of the Festival of Trees. This is the sixth year of this event that sees the Changing Gallery transformed into a winter wonderland filled with beautifully and creatively decorated trees. Each tree is sponsored by a different business or organization, with several new businesses participating this year. Until Dec. 17 you can vote for your favourite tree to win the People’s Choice Award. You are also welcome to come make a wish on the Wishing Tree. The Festival of Trees is open daily in December from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
