Christmas is just around the corner, and what better way to kick start the holly jolly feels than with the Platzl wide 'Countdown To Christmas' tonight? (redundant question: there isn't a better way)

I would say that you would have to be a fool to miss this great event, but I have to drive out to Alberta to babysit my nieces this weekend and I don't want to initiate Mr. T's pity on myself. So instead, with the helpful help of Shop Kimberley, I've gathered up all the 'sales & specials & grand openings & what nots' that each participating Platzl store will be offering tonight and I will instead just HIGHLY RECOMMEND that anyone not driving out to Nanton to watch a Paw Patrol marathon should make sure they find themselves in downtown Kimberley from 5pm onwards. It's gonna be a treat, see below for proof…


* Music: The Retroboys w/Lennan Delaney will play at the gazebo at 6pm and Summit 107 will be broadcasting live on site. There is also live music with no cover at the Green Door at 9pm (Gary Jacklin & Jay Wiseman).

* Grand Prize Draw: Enter to win a shopping spree. Many businesses have donated gift certificates for one lucky winner! Participating businesses will give out a ballot with purchase. 

Countdown To Christmas has been supported by the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce and Kimberley Alpine Resort. Also, a big shout out to the team behind Shop Kimberley, for not just organizing & helping spread the word on Facebook, but also for sending me all the above info for this blog post summary. And don't forget that tomorrow Kimberley goes even further into the Christmas spirit with 'The Platzl Light Up' (with many businesses staying open a little bit later than usual).


a little PS to those who made it all the way to the bottom: here's a Christmas mix tape that I'll post about tomorrow, but you can listen to now if counting down to Xmas has you fancying a little seasonal mood music
