Christmas on Baker celebrates holidays

The 14th annual Christmas on Baker is in full swing with a live nativity scene and music this evening.

The 14th annual Christmas on Baker is in full swing with a live nativity scene and music this evening with the help of emcee Joe Ringrose.

Actors are portraying Mary and Joseph with the baby Jesus in a manger, while musicians and several school groups are performing on stage until 8 p.m. The coral with two alpacas, a tiny horse and a peppy goat are popular.

“It’s a celebration of Christmas and to celebrate it with the local community,” said event organizer Jan Van Caeseele. She and her husband Paul are the key organizers this year with the support of the Nelson Ministerial Association which holds the event every year, and 200 volunteers.

Kelle Wardle started the entertainment followed by the Nelson Covenant Church youth group, the Nelson Christian Community School, St. Joseph Catholic School, the Kootenay Christian Fellowship band and the Barber Shop Quartet.

Complementary hot chocolate, cookies and apple cider are being served thanks to ministerial donations.
