Aldergrove Christmas Celebration and Parade

Christmas time’s a'comin’ to Aldergrove. And so is Santa, the Christmas Parade and the Light up Aldergrove contests

Christmas time’s a’comin’ to Aldergrove.

And so is Santa, the Christmas Parade and the Light up Aldergrove contests, courtesy of the Aldergrove Festival Days Society. Also coming is the Elks’ Community Christmas Celebration. They are all free community events to foster the Christmas spirit in Aldergrove.

Events coordinator and Festival Days President Karen Long is delighted that the events have come together so smoothly.

“It’s really great when community groups and businesses can get together like this to put on something special for the whole community,” she said.

“In addition to getting the families out to the Elks Celebration, then watching the light-up parade, show your community spirit by decorating your house, your business, or just for the kids – your front door.”

The first day to mark on the calendars is Saturday, December 14. The party begins at 3:30 p.m. at 27032 Fraser Highway (the old Aldergrove Elementary School) with the Elk’s Community Christmas Celebration and then continues with the Aldergrove Festival Days Parade at 6 p.m. The Parade runs up the main street from 270 Street to 273 Street.

“Watch for the free hot chocolate stations along the route,” says Long, “and also please remember to bring food items to be collected by the Girl Guides for the Food Bank.”

The second day to mark on the calendars is Tuesday, December 17, as that is when the Light-up Aldergrove Contests will be judged.

Long encourages all Aldergrovians to get involved, “especially the kids – decorating your front door is easy and fun!”

If you want to enter any, or all, of the three Light Up Aldergrove contests, email your registration to info@AldergroveFairDays.com by midnight on December 15. You can participate in the Business, Home, or Door contests. Be sure to include your name, address and phone number.
