Kimberley lights up the Platzl Saturday

Meet Santa, sing carols, get in some early shopping

Bring the kids to greet Santa this Saturday night in the Platzl.

It’s an unspoken rule in Kimberley — the Christmas season doesn’t officially start until the Platzl lights up.

And the Kimberley and District Chamber of Commerce  is ready to do just that this Saturday, November 17, 2012. Bring your kids down to the Platzl at 6 p.m. so they can welcome Santa. The Kimberley Community Choir will be on hand to provide some seasonal music, and Platzl businesses will be open so you can get some early shopping done.

Also this week, catch up with the latest Chamber news at the monthly Beverages & Business Cards gathering on Thursday, November 15 from 5 pm to 7 pm. This month’s mingle will be held at Core Fusion Technologies in Marysville  at 518 304th St. This is an opportunity to network and catch up on Chamber news in an informal setting.
