STORYBOOK VILLAGE IN DOWNTOWN KAMLOOPS
ike girls and boys who have had to make changes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Santa has opted this season to sprinkle magic downtown over several weeks, rather than parade through the streets on one frosty day. Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (Downtown Kamloops) executive director Carl DeSantis said the annual Santa Claus Parade has traditionally drawn crowds in the thousands downtown. However, with restrictions on mass gatherings to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus, the event cannot proceed this year.
6 - Christmas in Kamloops 2020 | Part 2
As a result, Santa has been working with the KCBIA on ways to bring the holiday spirit safely to the streets of Kamloops. DeSantis said effort that typically goes into creating parade floats has instead gone into decorating downtown storefronts and blocks, with the creation of a Storybook Village. The area is decked out more lavishly than years past and each block has a different theme. For example, the 100-block of Victoria Street is centred around Buddy the Elf. Expect to see lights, ornaments, characters, music and window paint when visiting the downtown core. Dozens of businesses and organizations are involved, including
the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and Lansdowne Village. Decorations are visible along Victoria Street, with help also coming from Thompson Rivers University and the BC Wildlife Park. Residents can take a walk downtown or a drive through the blocks at night, when the area is lit up. As for kids hoping to catch a glimpse of the man in the red suit, DeSantis said the KCBIA continues to work on details for a virtual visit with Santa Claus at Santaâ€™s Workshop. Kids can rest assured Santa is still coming to town. The KCBIA has a map of participating businesses on its website atÂ downtownkamloops.com.

PANDEMIC DERAILS CP HOLIDAY TRAIN
but online concert, donations to help food banks
he pandemic has taken the annual Canadian Pacific Holiday Train off the tracks, but the railroad company is still working to collect donations for the Kamloops Food Bank and food banks across the country. CP launched the Holiday Train in 1999 and every year since it has travelled across Canada and the northern U.S., raising money, collecting food and drawing attention to the work of local food banks. In lieu of the train travelling across North America this year, the company will donate $1.24 million to 201 food banks in communities that ordinarily host CP Holiday Train events, bringing the total amount

loss, we will host this concert as a call to action for the train’s supporters to donate generously if they can this Christmas season,” CP president and CEO Keith Creel said. “The spirit of the Holiday Train will come alive even though the train itself will not operate due to the COVID-19 pandemic.” More information can be found online at cpr.ca.

of money raised at CP Holiday Train stops to $19.05 million since 1999. In its first 21 years, the train also collected 4.8-million pounds of food for local food banks in communities along CP’s network. Last year’s stop in Kamloops — drawing thousands of people to the rear of Sandman Centre — raised about $50,000 and collected roughly 6,000 pounds of food for the Kamloops Food Bank. On Saturday, Dec. 12, at 5 p.m. locally, CP will present the live Holiday Train at Home concert on its Facebook page, featuring Serena Ryder, The Trews and other performers. “In a year full of challenge and
