Grand Prairie: The big city in the Peace River Country. While the days in the greater region get colder in the winter months (and the nights grow even colder), the city stays warm with all the plenty of things to do. Grand Prairie presents three cozy events to keep your mind off the cold.
Cirque Musica Holiday
Concerts are nice, but concerts with visual experiences are much better. This isn’t just colours and bright lights, you’ll get to enjoy acrobats, jokesters and pranksters, and just an overall wintery Wonderland experience. The show is orchestrated by a live symphony orchestra that brings the music and action to life. Come to Wonderland by Cirque Musica Holiday on Sunday December 16, 2018. The show starts at 5:00 PM at Revolution Place. Tickets range from $39 to $93. Make sure to get your ticket now as there is only one showing!
Dave Barr Ugly Sweater Party
Some of us hate them. Some of us love them. One thing is for sure: everyone has fun when they’re involved in the party. What are we talking about? Well Ugly Christmas Sweaters, of course! The Dave Barr Community Centre is hosting an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party (on ice!) on Saturday, December 22, 2018. The party starts at 1PM and concludes around 3 PM. Bring your own skates, and they’ll bring the hot chocolate. It’s time to dig up that cringe-worthy and even more cringe-worthy dance moves on ice. Something for the community to enjoy right before Christmas itself.
Grand Prairie Paint Nights
Perhaps, you’re in the mood for something a little more low-key. We get it. Grand Prairie Paint Nights by Connie Goedee might be just for you (this event is 18+). With only 20 spots available, the seats will go fast. Join Connie in her “Wintertime” themed paint night, she provides the Canvas and Art supplies, and a free drink. This wintery theme is on December 19 from 7PM - 10PM at Pines.
If you are interested in these Grand Prairie events, but want to stay in a more gentle less city-like area, then it’s best to check out Paradise Inn & Suites in Valleyview. With complimentary breakfast and the best window views in Valleyview, it may feel like you never left home.
