Rock Creek plans light-up

Discover Rock Creek invites everyone to join them at their annual Christmas Tree light-up and a seasonal house light-up contest is announced

Come share the beginnings of the Christmas season.

Not content with lighting up a single tree in the Rock Creek Market grounds, this year the Discover Rock Creek Society is planning to light up the whole town as they are sponsoring their inaugural Community Christmas Light-up.

Prizes are $100 for first, $50 for second and third place will win $25. To register for contest consideration, call Pat Pownall at 250-528-0227. Judging will take place Monday, Dec. 15. “Let’s light up our community,” Pownall said.

The Christmas Light-up will take place this year on Sunday, Nov. 23 from 3-5 p.m.

Supper is available by donation and they will be accepting non-perishable food donations for the community.
