The Aldergrove Festival Days “Light Up” Christmas Parade takes place on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. in downtown Aldergrove. And while the parade route is the same, the assembly area and direction have changed.

The parade will start at 270 Street, next to the Aldergrove Community Policing Office, and disperse at 273 Street. This is the opposite direction as in previous years. Parade parking will be available in the back area of Aldergrove Elementary.

This time the parade is coming into town and after the parade organizers are offering a gathering area in the parking lot of the old Elks Hall, 27309 Fraser Hwy., where everyone will join in singing some Christmas carols. Everyone is invited to join in the spirit of Christmas.

The Otter Grove Girl Guides will be collecting food items for the food bank along the parade route with their shopping carts and ask that you please bring a donation for them.

The Aldergrove Elks will be hosting their 18th annual Children’s Christmas Celebration at the OAP Hall, south of Fraser Hwy. on 273 Street, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. This is also a free family event, featuring appearances by Santa Claus and Snow White.

The Aldergrove Business Association is also hosting the Aldergrove “Light Up” competitions. Businesses and residents are invited to participate, or if you know someone who has done an outstanding “light up” job, feel welcome to nominate them. To register see website: info@aldergroveba.ca

Let’s put our town on the map for families to enjoy our light displays. Volunteers are also appreciated. Please feel free to contact the organizers if you wish to volunteer or if you have any questions; call Karen Long at 604-418-9507 or email http://www.aldergrovefestivaldays.com/

SNOW WHITE RETURNS TO ELKS’ CHRISTMAS PARTY

Langley actress and singer Alyssa Neilsen will bring her Snow White character to the Aldergrove Elks Christmas party for children on December 8 in Aldergrove.

“I will be performing and entertaining the kids and adults at the event, with singing, storytelling, games, and I am also posing for photos with the children if parents bring their own camera,” said Neilsen.

Neilsen has previously appeared at the annual Elks party for children, and she has been a hit with the children, as she remains in character throughout her appearance.

From something as simple as a reminder not to take food from strangers, to the importance of friendship, Snow White brings her gentle voice and sweet nature to every event. Pass the ‘poison apple’ and win a prize! Do your best to whistle and dance a jig! Watch as your little princess falls in love with this sweet and vibrant lady!

She started As You Wish in March of 2009, with the desire to bring joy to children, teach values, share a magical experience — and to stay geographically closer to her own two children.

Her company name is As You Wish Princess and you can find her website at;
