Verona Community Association
Sponsored Events and Programs
Each year the VCA sponsors a regular series of events, and tries to add to them on an on-going basis.
There are crafts, games, train rides(weather permitting), musical entertainment and Santa Claus makes appearances with the Mrs. Claus. It is a great start to the holiday Season.
The day starts with a Christmas Tree Decorating event. Groups, families and organizations decorate their assigned trees. Visitors have the opportunity to vote for their favourites. Prizes will be awarded. For full contest rules, log onto www.yourverona.com
In the afternoon, the Lions Hall will become a centre for fun, entertainment and games. Children will have lots to do both inside and outside the Lions Hall. The whole family will enjoy the Christmas atmosphere as children participate in creating holiday crafts and play holiday games while enjoying snacks and listening to holiday music. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will drop by and provide photo opportunities. As the children play, the adults can keep busy with card and board games. Outside, depending on the weather, the Verona Cattail Train and horse-drawn wagon rides will be running. After the fun and games, visitors can enjoy a delicious Chili dinner and hot dogs served at 5 pm.
At 4:30 pm everyone gathers outside by the Pavilion for the Tree Lighting Ceremony. All the decorated trees light up simultaneously.
Live musical entertainment will provide the entertainment from 5 pm to 7 pm inside the hall playing a variety of dance and Christmas Music. Outside there will be a colourful display of Christmas lights and decorated trees, piped Christmas music, and fire pits for roasting marshmallows.
