Cambie Christmas concert returns

It’s the children who make this concert a success, whether it’s two or 20.

Around 52 years ago, Esther Erikson took over running the Family Christmas Concert at Cambie Hall. And each year, she says, it’s the children who make this concert a success, whether it’s two or 20.

“The children, with the parents’ help, practise at home and some parents participate alone or with the children,” explains Erikson. “When all the acts are over, we sing on stage with the children until Santa arrives. “When Santa finishes handing out the bags of candy and talking with all, we have goodies, juice and coffee.”

Erikson asks that parents and grandparents bring some Christmas goodies to share.

The concert takes place Friday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. All are welcome. For more information, call Esther at 250-836-4373.

Erikson says the tree and decorations will be going up on Thursday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m.
