Christmas in the Village fun despite frigid weather

Santa at KBPV

Toni Lucas - Christmas in the Village took place at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village Saturday, December 10.  Even though the weather was below -20 degrees celsius over 100 people came to make Christmas decorations, play games explore the many decorated trees on site.  Near a roaring bonfire with roasting chestnuts was an outdoor decorated tree with Jolly Old St. NIcholas in his sleigh ready to visit with all the kids    The new cafe is not fully finished, but gave people a warm and festively decorated place to sit and sip hot chocolate and enjoy the festive setup on the historical grounds.

Pincher Creek and District Historical Society President Colleen Cyr was quite happy with the event.  "We are really trying to create a feeling of a old fashioned Christmas," she explained while wearing a Santa hat and dishing out hot apple cider.
