Bring the whole family to downtown Rossland on December 1st, 2012 for our 19th Annual Rekindle The Spirit of Christmas. Come visit the brightest little ski town in the Kootenays and get in the Yuletide spirit! Peruse the boutique shops for that special something on your Christmas list, as downtown businesses will be open with lots of super holiday deals.

Old favorites include having photos taken with Santa by Larry Doel, have some Christmas cheer, sing some carols, and buy your Christmas tree from the Red Mountain Racers. Don’t forget your shopping lists and enjoy the hospitality and high quality shopping of the many unique boutique downtown shops.

Enjoy an old fashioned traditional Christmas day in a winter wonderland of beautiful mountain scenery. As the sun goes down join the crowd in the Levfevre Square for the lighting of the town tree, carol singing and the drawing of the coveted basket full of valuable merchandise. You will feel the wonderment of the season on this one special day that you won’t want to end.
