Santa Claus Parade
It's time to
dust off your reindeer and best elf suit!
it's the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, December 6th. Entry
forms and parade instructions are available at the Chamber
of Commerce office, 204 MacKenzie Avenue.
Revelstoke received an increase
of nearly 17,000 visitors at the two Visitor Information Centres (VIC)
bringing the total visitors to the two locations to over 40,000 as at
the end of September. Over last year, we received a 57% increase in
visitor enquiries! The Grizzly Plaza location was incredibly busy and
accounted for all of the increased numbers. At the main Chamber VIC
visits are down, but only slightly, and we still have three months to go
to maintain our visitor statistics for the entire year at that location.
It is also encouraging to hear from many businesses that they received
an increase in traffic due to the Plaza VIC. Even in September, traffic
was strong. The downtown location offered our visitors excellent
information and convinced many groups, families and individuals to take
advantage of the many attractions and facilities that Revelstoke has to
offer. Of course, the goal is to encourage vacationers to stay at least
one extra day.
