A winter wonderland is being created down at the Baker Street Mall, to help launch the Christmas season in Cranbrook and to help out the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club.

Christmas Village, a first annual venture by Black Press and the community of Cranbrook, is a glowing seasonal creation in the old Sears space in the Baker Mall. Come down and check out astounding gingerbread houses and teddy bear gift baskets created by dozens of local businesses, and a forest of amazing Christmas trees decorated by the students of Cranbrook schools.

The baskets, gingerbread houses and customized Christmas trees are up for silent auction — here is a gamut of great Christmas presents or decorations for your own home, and a chance to support the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club in the great work it does.

Christmas Village opens Friday, Nov. 25, at 4 p.m. — just in time for Cranbrook’s Santa Claus Parade — and runs until 7 p.m. Christmas Village is then open Saturday, Nov. 26 to Thursday, Dec. 1, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Friday, Dec. 2, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. The bidding closes at 5 p.m. that day, and seasonal celebrations will take place, including a live auction and presentation of the People’s Choice Awards.

The Christmas trees will be delivered decorated to your home.

Stay tuned for more in the coming days.
