ESTEVAN - The Estevan Downtown Business Association is very excited to announce the Miracle on Fourth Street Holiday Festival, which will take place on Dec. 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the 1100 and 1200 blocks of Fourth Street.
The day will be jam packed with many activities, including a free hot dog and hot chocolate lunch provided by The Tower Café, Eleven 24 Social House and Willy’s the Tap House.
Carnival games will be prepared and ran by the Estevan Comprehensive School SRC. There will be crafts and activities prepared by the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum, hayrides by Graham Collie and family, a petting zoo by Tail-ling Farms and two free matinees at the Orpheum Theater: The Polar Express for the younger crowd and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for the older ones, sponsored by Coldwell Banker Choice Real Estate.
Santa will be on site spreading cheer to all the little boys and girls as well.
You will also be able to take advantage of all the smashing deals and specials the Downtown Business Association members will have on in store all day long. All of the events are free and open to all members of the public, except for the matinees where proof of vaccination will be required.
“The Downtown Business Association is once again excited to be putting on an amazing event for the citizens of Estevan and surrounding area,” said Josh LeBlanc, head organizer for the event. “This is the third new event that we are bringing to the city as an association. It is in addition to the Street Dance and Night Markets.
“We know that there is a real demand for events to happen in our community and the more we can utilize our downtown core, the more we hope we can develop into a gathering spot for commerce, community celebration and collaboration.”
This event will replace Moonlight Madness, which has been very successful in the past.
“There was a wish from the membership to try something different, create a new event and make it a memorable one which will allow our community to gather and celebrate the holiday season.”
Estevan city council approved the closure of Fourth Street for the event at Monday night's meeting.
The association is still looking for groups that would be interested in carolling throughout the street during the day.
“If you have a church or community group that would be interested in doing so, please feel free to contact me,” said LeBlanc.
