There's a ton of Christmas fun this weekend.
On Friday (Nov.23), the City of Fort Saskatchewan is hosting the Lights Up! celebration.
Dignitaries will flip the switch for Christmas lights at city hall and unveil the Enchanted Forest. There will also be crafts, carolers, treats and a reading of Twas' the Night Before Christmas by mayor Gale Katchur. The event goes from 5-7 p.m.
On Saturday morning, Jolly Old St.Nick will take a break from preparing for his busiest night of the year and join the Santa Claus Parade in downtown Fort Saskatchewan. Bring your Christmas letters to hand to Santa's elves. The parade starts at 11 a.m. View the route here.
Looking for the perfect gift? You might find it at the annual Christmas Marketplace in the Dow Centennial Centre. Browse over 100 vendors from local crafters to clothing and accessories. The event goes on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Santa Claus will also be visiting from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
"It's so wonderful to shop local, support everyone here and enjoy the Christmas season," said Erin Duncan from the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber is putting on both the parade and the marketplace.
