Steveston Songs in the Snow to brighten winter darkness

One of Richmond’s favourite holiday traditions continues with the 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, Dec. 7, 14 and 21, all from 4 to 6 p.m. in Town Square Park, next to the museum.

The series, now in its third year, is presented by the Steveston Historical Society in cooperation with the City of Richmond and the Richmond Arts Coalition.

New this year, the park will be decorated with sound-activated dancing lights, courtesy of Tourism Richmond, which will illuminate when visitors sing, clap or play their favourite instrument.

As well, visitors can enjoy hot chocolate provided by the G&F Financial Group, purchase treats as a fundraiser for Richmond Secondary’s catering program and create vintage-style Christmas crafts.

Caricature artist Cartoon Katie will also 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,” said Linda Barnes, chair of the Steveston Historical Society.

“These young women will be dressed in Edwardian costumes meandering through the village of Steveston, setting the scene for the concerts.

“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.
