Five ways to Make Merry This Weekend December 10-12, 2021

From 50,000+ light tour to Santa riding around Red Deer in a bus, there is something to get you in the festive mood this weekend.

A Winter Night Lights Tour and then dinner at the Westlake Grill is the perfect way to put you in the mood for Christmas. Whether your family oryour date, spend a magical night as a horse-drawn sleigh takes you through Heritage ranch’s 50,000+ display of winter lights.

Santa and his number one Elf are back in town and ready to bring Christmas cheer to the neighbourhoods of Red Deer. Instead of the traditional sleigh, they will be riding high on a Red Deer Transit Bus decked out in a multitude of festive lights. Check out the City of Red Deer’s Website for details and maps for each of his routes starting this Friday at 5:45 pm.

Red Deer Made Christmas Market at Westerner Park supports Alberta-made Artisans, Makers and Foodies, and it’s happening this weekend at Parkland Pavilion in Westerner Park. Enjoy the spirit of giving as you browse through the stalls to find that special something for that perfect someone. Check out our other Holiday markets and show our local business some love.

Join the Red Deer Museum & Art Gallery to open their two new Winter Exhibits Sunday from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
