Town Crest created by Kenny Elms in 2000
Town Of Reidville
Newfoundland Labrador, Canada

Christmas is a very exciting time in Reidville.There are many events held throughout the season for all to enjoy.  The Christmas (or Santa Claus) Parade usually kicks-off the holiday celebrations. This is followed up by an evening of "Lighting the Christmas Tree and placing momentos on the "tree of memories".

The young children always enjoy a glimpse of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve as the local firetruck give him a lift around town. On the evening of Boxing Day the town host an adult dance which is always very popular. Throughout the twelve days of christmas the residents are encouraged to participate in the Christmas Sparkle Contest which has first, second and honorable mention awards for the best decorated properties during the holiday season.

Things usually wrap-up with a New Years dinner and dance. To view several slideshows of some of these activities follow the links on this page or Click on the pictures to activate slideshows.
