For All Well Behaved Chidren & Pets
The Main Site location now has over 30,000 lights and an impressive collection of over 100 inflatable components. Many residents in the community continue to enhance their impressive displays each year.
NRG has a program to allow participation by Normanview residents with restricted finances, offering free lights to those that display them each year at their location. This not only encourages inclusiveness and community building, it rejoices the Holiday Spirit between neighbours representing a diverse mosaic of cultures and religious beliefs.
- We can no longer accept Non-Perishable Food Items for the Regina & District Food Bank. If you wish to still do so, the items can be dropped off at the collection bin in Tom’s Independent Grocer, Normanview Crossing.
Hot chocolate (with or without Marshmallows, courtesy of Tom’s Independent Grocer) as well as Coffee, Tea or Hot Apple Cider for $2, courtesy of Ambassador Coffee Service.
Delicious Christmas Cookies, courtesy of Tom’s Independent Grocer & Teanna Morgan, as well as Tasha from SnT Baked Goodies, available for 3 for $3.
This festival is run by volunteers not only from the Normanview area but citywide, serves as a crucial fund raiser for our non-profit community association. High school students from all areas of the city have stepped up to participate in this worthy cause that addresses Food Security in our community. Aside from Creation and Set-Up of Displays, the Festival has commitment of over 500 volunteer hours to adequately serve the anticipated 15,000 visitors this year.
We are working to establish different “Greet & Meet” local celebrity nights as well attracting local choir groups for carolling.
The New Entrance Gate Hut, separate from the previous Elf Hut (located at the back for Concessions Only), has already proven to reduce waiting time for Admission.
A Promotional Float was entered in a Regina Parade and will hopefully be participating in all 3 next year!
