This year Moonlight Madness will run in conjunction with the new Winter Carnival on Dec. 7 in Memorial Park.

“It will be a great community activity, and a chance to get people out of their homes, and doing something fun,” said Deb Romano, carnival organizer.

There will be many fun carnival games including batting cages, hockey, soccer and more. The games cost $1 each, making it affordable for everyone. Hope Motorsports Group is organizing a toboggan run and The Hope Entertainment and Video Market will be playing cartoons and movies outside.

The Hope Lions are also offering hay rides, and there will be numerous craft tables set up.

“People are welcome to come and set up a table for the night,” said Romano.

Moonlight Madness will also run on Dec. 7, and is being organized by the Hope and District Chamber of Commerce. The event takes place in downtown Hope, and is an evening where businesses stay open for late night shopping.

The night will feature cider and hot chocolate, Christmas tree lighting, and a farmers’ market. There will also be a business window decorating contest, and prizes will be awarded. All the businesses in Hope are welcome to participate in the contest.

“This is an opportunity for the businesses to give back to the community, and a chance for people to shop local, and enjoy an evening walking from one end of Wallace Street to the other,” said Donna Kropp, Chamber member.

Tillicum Centre will be accepting gently used games, toys and puzzles at the Winter Carnival to fill their tree. Drop an item off and your name can be entered in a prize draw.

All money raised at the Winter Carnival goes towards Fraser Health Classic Corner Adult Day Program.
