Steveston Museum’s Songs in the Snow brightens the winter darkness
26 November 2019
A beloved community holiday tradition continues this December with the third annual Songs in the Snow concert series at Steveston Museum. As part of the Winter in the Village series, Richmond musicians will perform holiday favourites on Saturday, December 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. in Town Square Park next to the museum in the first of three consecutive Saturday concerts.
Presented by the Steveston Historical Society in cooperation with the City of Richmond and the Richmond Arts Coalition, this three part series continues on Saturday, December 14 and 21 also from 4 to 6 p.m.
New this year, the park will be decorated with sound activated dancing lights presented by Tourism Richmond. These lights will illuminate when visitors sing, clap or play their favourite instrument. As well, visitors can enjoy hot chocolate provided by G&F Financial Group, purchase treats as a fundraiser for Richmond Secondary School’s catering program and create vintage-style Christmas crafts. Caricature artist, Cartoon Katie, will be on hand to capture families in a fun, hand-drawn portrait.
“We are pleased to welcome the Rivers’ Edge Girl Guide troop to sing traditional Christmas carols. These young women will be dressed in Edwardian costumes meandering through the Village of Steveston setting the scene for the concerts,” says Linda Barnes, Chair of the Steveston Historical Society. “We are also grateful to our partner the Richmond Arts Coalition who retain local, young entertainers.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to donate to three local charity partners – a different one on each night – who will be providing information and raising funds for their organizations.
