Big Val­ley sparkles with hol­i­day light.

Big Val­ley’s “Christ­mas in the Vil­lage” was a fes­tive, fam­ily-friendly cel­e­bra­tion of all things merry and bright.

The event, held on De­cem­ber 22, brought the com­mu­nity of Big Val­ley and the sur­round­ing area to­gether to share an old-fash­ioned hol­lyjolly Christ­mas.

From its hum­ble be­gin­nings seven years ago, this event has grown to be­come a corner­stone of the Big Val­ley hol­i­day sea­son.

In the hec­tic month of De­cem­ber, when peo­ple are stretched in all di­rec­tions try­ing to bal­ance work, fam­ily obli­ga­tions and pre-Christ­mas prepa­ra­tions, “Christ­mas in the Vil­lage” of­fered the com­mu­nity an evening of cel­e­bra­tion and “plain-ole” fun!

With great food, old-fash­ioned hay rides, hot-cho­co­late, bon­fires, ice skat­ing, sparkling light dis­plays, and marvel- ous live en­ter­tain­ment, it was an evening for fam­i­lies and friends to come to­gether and ex­pe­ri­ence some free, fun and time hon­oured hol­i­day tra­di­tions.

Cre­at­ing that fes­tive atmo- sphere re­quired a team ef­fort.

Orig­i­nally spon­sored by the Big Val­ley Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion and the Vil­lage of Big Val­ley, sup­port­ers now in­clude the Big Val­ley Ag. So­ci­ety, the Friends of the Big Val­ley Li­brary, the Big Val­ley Ukulele Club, Rosco, the Orig­i­nal Cow­girls – Linda Thurston and Lori and Dal­las Gor­don, and nu­mer­ous in­di­vid­ual vol­un­teers who shared their time, cre­ative tal­ents and abil­i­ties to bring this spe­cial event to life.

A big thank you to all.
