Comox Valley Events

Saturday, December 13, 2014 – Chestnuts and Carols – 1 to 4pm at the Campbell River Museum in Campbell River, BC – a 40-minute trip from Courtenay, BC

The Campbell River Museum will be hosting an afternoon filled with Christmas activities this year, as part of the Festival of Trees Celebration which began November 28, 2014.

Visitors to the museum can come and sample hot roasted chestnuts that will be served by the Campbell River Italian Culture Society. Live accordion music will be performed from 1 to 1:30pm; afterwards at 1:30 and then again at 3pm will be live musical performances of some Christmas holiday favourites from True Blue, a vocal jazz group featuring members Kathy Freeman, Julie Johnson, Colleen Krasman and Jean Valikoski.

In between the accordion and True Blue, from 2 to 2:30pm, RainCoast Creative Performing Arts students ages 5-18 will present their short holiday performance of Musical Theatre, and sing a few sing-a-long songs at the end of the performance.

Even Santa will be making an appearance! Have your lists ready for Santa by 2:30pm as he’ll be taking note of what to put under your Christmas tree this year.

This is a free family event for everyone to enjoy. Hot cider and goodies will also be provided.

If you’re in need of celebrating the holiday season, why not make it an afternoon at the Campbell River Museum?
