Light Up The Fu­ture warms a cold night in Swift Cur­rent

The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

The warmth of Swift Cur­rent's third and fi­nal Cen­ten­nial was ev­i­dent in the scarf cov­ered faces of the large turnout of peo­ple at Fri­day night's Light Up The Fu­ture Cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion.

Mother Na­ture did lit­tle to make it a com­fort­able night, with the tem- per­a­ture drop­ping from a day­time high of -4 Cel­sius at 2 p.m. to a -14 Cel­sius and a wind chill tem­per­a­ture of -25 when the in­au­gu­ral Lions Christ­mas Light Pa­rade be­gan to wind its way through the down­town core.

The tent at Mar­ket Square was a popular spot out of the el­e­ments, where peo­ple could en­joy live en­ter­tain­ment and be shel­tered from the worst of the cold.

The Lyric The­atre also drew large crowds for a bake sale, the Fes­ti­val of Trees in support of the Dr. Noble Ir­win Re­gional Health­care Foun­da­tion, along with ad­di­tional en­ter­tain­ment.
