Christmas in Pitt Meadows Friday

Santa brings festivities to Spirit Square

Christmas in Pitt Meadows has become one of the signature events in the city, undertaken by the city each year to ring in the holiday season.

This year’s event goes on Friday, Dec. 1 from 6-8 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there, along with musical entertainment, ice sculptures, children’s activities, crafts and refreshments.

“The City celebrates the ninth annual Christmas in Pitt Meadows Friday December 1 in Spirit Square,” said Mayor John Becker. “This year’s event has all of the vibrant activities that the community has come to expect with a few surprises. Watch for the Christmas Stilt Walkers and entertainment from the Beauty Shop Dolls Trio, a vintage vocal trio. Elsa and Olaf will be there for the kids. Join us for activities, refreshments and entertainment for all ages.”

Becker, Santa and other luminaries will light up the Christmas tree in Spirit Square.

The event was first held in 2008 with a modest crowd of 400 people, but there were several times that number for the 2016 Christmas in Pitt Meadows.

The event is free, and runs from 6-8 p.m.
