Nobleford’s Christmas in the Park will take place on December 15 at the Centennial Park and the Community Hall from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Christmas in the Park is a free fun event that brings community members together to celebrate the holiday season,” said Lindsey Jakober, HR Business Partner with AGI (Ag Growth International).

During the event, Jakober says, community members can enjoy the fresh winter air, stay warm with a cup of hot chocolate or apple cider and connect with neighbours around one of the fire pits. Oliebollen (a Dutch pastry) and popcorn will be served at Centennial Park, while cookies will be served at the outdoor rink. 

New this year, Jakober says, FCSS has organized ‘Little Santa’ gifts, a photo booth, and the opportunity to meet Santa and his elf. 

“I am excited that FCSS has decided to join in the festivities this year,” said Jakober.

Jakober adds that hayrides will be available to transport between the events. The community, Jakober says, will gather at 7:30pm to light the community tree at Centennial Park.

“I look forward to this festive event, (it) allows for community members to take time to reconnect with their neighbours and provides an opportunity for community businesses and organizations to give back to the community,” said Jakober. “I look forward to what Christmas in the Park will look like in years to come, as it grows bigger each year. On a more personal note, my employees at AGI are excited to participate in this wonderful event and my kids are excited for the holiday treats, the hayrides and meeting Santa and his elf, ‘Scampy’.”

Jakober says that the event is organized by the Nobleford Heritage Society, Nobleford Ag Society, the Nobleford Fire Department and Family & Community Support Services. In addition to that, Jakober says, Joan Boeder, the Mayor of Nobleford, herself, and community organizations worked with the community businesses to make this event a reality. Specifically, Jakober says, AgroPlus supplied the candy canes, Richardson Pioneer supplied the star lights for the community tree, Town of Nobleford will help with set up of the event and supplied the sound system and popcorn machine, Nobleford Ag Society will be hot chocolate and apple cider, AGI made a donation to pay for the food and drinks for the event, will help with set up, will serve popcorn, and will supply Santa and his Elf ‘Scampy’; the Nobleford Fire Department will supply and organize the fire pits and the Oliebollen and organize the hay ride; Ridgeline Construction installed the lights and star on the community tree; Nobleford Heritage Society supplied the popcorn for the event; West Peak Construction donated for lights for the event; and FCSS will be serving hot chocolate, and will be organizing ‘little Santa gifts, a photo booth and the backdrop for Santa.’
