Light Up The Future warms a cold night in Swift Current
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.
