Winter Wonderland celebration rescheduled for Dec. 14
You can’t stop Christmas.
The annual Winter Wonderland celebration originally scheduled for Nov. 30 — the day a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Eagle River — has been rescheduled for Dec. 14 in Town Square Park.
The tree lighting celebration featuring Christmas music, hot cocoa, the Christmas tree lighting and a visit from Santa Claus will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Town Square Park on Business Boulevard. The celebration won’t be as flashy as the one origianlly planned, but the show will definitely go on.
“While this celebration will be on a much smaller scale, our community needs some light!” wrote the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber, which puts on the annual event.
Anyone wanting to participate in the event is asked to email the chamber at [email protected].
