To safely celebrate the start of the holiday season, the Chippewas of Nawash Native Child Welfare Program is hosting a Community Lights & Activities Festival at the Cape Croker Park. Running from Wednesday, December 2 to Sunday, December 6, the event will be open every evening from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The highlight of the Festival will be the Christmas Decorated Path, a walking tour of seasonal dioramas staged by Band programs and staff.
The Band Office staff, seen above, are already putting their tour de force of lights together! A friendly Christmas competition is brewing between Programs vying for the hotly-contested Best Program Display prize.
There will be door prizes for lucky visitors, as well as the best home-made decoration. Bring your hand-crafted treasure to hang on our Community Christmas Tree!
