Enchanted Forest

The Boys and Girls Club and Families First helped out with the MIX 107.9/ tree at the Enchanted Forest.

MIX 107.9/ wanted their tree to be community orientated, so the Boys and Girls Club did the chain and Families First did the ornaments Thursday morning. (Nov. 26)

Brooke Wandamaker had a lot of fun!  Evan Wandamaker also helped out.  Blake Boyd put on decorations.  You can hear all three of them on Mix 107.9FM!

The Enchanted Forest is a favourite holiday tradition in the City of Fort Saskatchewan.

Local organizations and business create unique, beautiful, fun Christmas trees that reflect the wonderful colours and themes of the holiday season with a special touch that tells the story of the organization.

Fort Saskatchewan celebrates a diverse and vibrant community, as the Enchanted Forest reflects this diversity.

You can go on a holiday tour of The Dow Centennial Centre, Shell Theatre, City Hall and the Public Library to see all of the fabulous trees until Orthodox (Ukrainian) Christmas.

Ask reception for a guide to the enchanted forest and don't forget to vote for your favourite tree for a chance to win a prize!

Making a Prostate-ment with Movember
