The Christmas spirit will be alive and well in Fort St. James this year, as the Fort St. James National Historic Site once again will host a Heritage Christmas event.
On Dec. 8, the park will come alive with a nativity play, the model train will return, free sleigh rides courtesy of the Silver Springs Country Recreation and Wellness, a live diorama, Christmas carollers and Overwaitea providing free hot dogs and hot chocolate.
The Friends of Fort St. James National Historic Site will be helping out, of course, and anyone is welcome to join the carollers, with a practice open to all on Tuesday, Dec. 3. at 6:30 p.m..
The historic site will again help bring history and Christmas to life.
The last Heritage Christmas in the community was in 2010.
