Christmas by the Lake: Held on the grounds of the Silverton Gallery, this 3 day event recreates an authentic German Village Christmas fair and features activities for the whole family with the magical lighting of the Village on Friday night, the ice sculptures, black smith demonstration, children’s ice slide, Santa Claus, the Grinch, and food galore. Artisans sell everything from ginger bread houses to some of the finest arts and crafts in the Kootenays. There is also a live musical entertainment all weekend, featuring community orchestra, choirs, and bands. Silverton Gallery volunteers will be running their popular ornament-making workshop for kids all weekend. For more information: www.christmasbythelake.ca
