Nord-Bridge Senior Centre will be hosting their third annual Winter Wonderland Walk-Through event on Friday with over 30 decorated Christmas trees for the Lethbridge community to enjoy.

The event will be open to the general public from 1:00 p.m to 3:30 p.m. and they will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items as an entry fee. The food will be donated to the Interfaith Food Bank.

Nord-Bridge Senior Centre program coordinator, Ashley Kern, said the program originally started during the pandemic with a virtual walk through on social media.

“Now we are happy to have this in person, as sometimes the holidays and winter season can increase social isolation and depression in seniors,” said Kern.

She said those in attendance can enjoy live music, socialize over hot cocoa while enjoying a walk through the main corridor filled with fully-decorated Christmas trees.

“They can also win prizes from local businesses as part of our 25 Days of Christmas for a small fee and get a photo with Santa by donating a toy or non-perishable food item,” said Kern.

She said around Christmas time they will be donating the fully decorated trees and non-perishable food items collected at the event to the Interfaith Food Bank so they can distribute them amongst those in need and spread some Christmas cheer.
