Ponoka Chamber’s Almost Midnight Madness coming up

Sleigh rides and Santa return to Ponoka’s downtown for the busy holiday sales event

Ponoka shoppers and businesses are readying themselves for a busy Almost Midnight Madness, hosted by the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce.

Set for Friday, Nov. 30 from 6 to 11 p.m. organizers have put out all the stops with downtown sleigh rides and free hot chocolate and cookies.

To get things started, a special tree lighting is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Kinsmen Community Centre where the cookies and hot chocolate will be readily available. Santa will make an appearance as part of the tree lighting, riding the Ponoka County East District Fire Department’s fire truck.

Organizers ask participants to bring either cash or a non-perishable food item to go to the Ponoka Food Bank to the tree lighting. Along with the sleigh rides there will be Christmas karaoke at the Kinsmen Community Centre during the tree lighting.

For the sleigh rides parents are asked to accompany their children.
