COVID-19: The Town of Brome Lake Revamps its Holiday Activity Schedule

Brome Lake, November 6, 2020 — The Town of Brome Lake announces that it has no choice but to put a cross on the Lions Club Christmas parade, as well as the Midnight Madness event, organized in collaboration with merchants. A decision will be made in early December as to the presentation of the traditional fireworks display to be held between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

These decisions are based on the current sanitary context, which is not very suitable for gatherings. “All of the stakeholders involved in the organization of these events had fears about the way they take place, where it can sometimes be complicated to maintain a good distance,” explains the Brome Lake’s mayor, Richard Burcombe. “Nevertheless, our teams are already working very hard to put together an original and colourful program that will respect Public Health guidelines.”

Santa Claus will not parade through the streets of Brome Lake, but he will still get noticed: virtual meetings will be organized with the white-bearded character in a red suit.

Other activities will brighten up the period leading up to the holiday season, including Christmas decoration contests for residents and merchants, a renewed Advent calendar and an elf hunt. The downtown area will take on the look of a Christmas village with the illumination of the Blackwood Dam falls, magic lanterns and many other decorations that will embellish the area.

Details of these new activities will gradually be revealed on the Town of Brome Lake website, as well as on the Town’s official Facebook page.
