December is just around the corner and it is time to get into the holiday spirit! Take a look at our list (and check it twice) to find out the best activities to do around Prince George leading up to Christmas.

 

The Festival of Trees: This annual holiday event is a fundraiser for the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation where Christmas trees are auctioned off. There is a gift shop, craft corner for kids, live music and dancing, and other special events. This fantastic event ends on December 2.

 

Craft Fairs and Markets: A great way to do some Christmas shopping and support local is to head to a craft fair or market this holiday season. Click the link to see our blog post including a list of local craft fairs: Prince George Craft Fairs. If you’re looking for something a little different visit the local Omineca Holiday Market, on December 7.

 

Holiday performances: One of the best ways to get into the Christmas spirit is by checking out a holiday themed show. Wonderland presented by Cirque Musica is a concert and visual experience, taking place on December 15 at the CN Centre. Audiences will journey into a world of high-flying adventure with amazing acrobats, aerialists, hilarious hijinks and holiday cheer.

Check out a Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol presented by Judy Russell will take place from December 13 to 22 at the PG Playhouse.

The Prince George Symphony Orchestra will be performing Handel’s Messiah on December 15th at Vanier Hall.

 

Candy Cane Lane: Every year, the residents of McKenzie Avenue and Aitken Crescent turn their streets into Candy Cane Lane. Once the sun sets these locals turn on their lights to turn their neighborhood into a magical Christmas scene and invite the public to walk around and take in the holiday.

 

Railway and Forestry Museum Celebration of Lights: The Celebration of Lights is returning to the Railway and Forestry Museum this holiday season! Take a walk through time as you enjoy over 100,000 lights and displays throughout the eight-acre park. Several rail cars and coaches will be lit both inside and outside for you to enjoy. This event will run from December 18-24 and again from December 27-30. Admission is free of December 18 with donation of a non-perishable food item.

 

Special Hockey Games: On December 2, the Prince George Cougars will be holding their annual Un-Teddy Bear Toss with a new twist. Instead of stuffed animals, the Cougars are asking fans to throw warm winter clothes (in a bag) on the ice when the Cougars score their first goal. On December 14, the Prince George Spruce Kings are holding their annual Drop the Gloves Night. This annual event is similar to the Cougar’s game as the Kings are also asking fans to bring bagged warm clothes and toss them onto the ice when the Spruce Kings score their first goal.

 

Caledonia Nordic’s Santa Ski: Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and their elves will be out at the Caledonia Nordic Ski Club on December 16. This great family event will give you an opportunity to check out Otway and see Santa! Non-members will need to pick up a free pass at the Rotary Lodge and everyone is encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, unwrapped gifts, or cash donations for the Prince George Salvation Army Food Bank.

Kym Gouchie’s band, Northern Sky, is comprised of Naomi Kavka, Danny Bell, Jeremy Pahl, Amy Blanding, and Corbin Spensley. This all-star lineup has been developing a sound with Kym that is both large and graceful. Five-part harmonies, strings, and thumping drums provide a beautiful soundscape behind Kym’s powerful voice and message.

The concert will also have the musical support of Juno-nominated recording artist Marcel Gagnon and esteemed local folk artist Saltwater Hank, rounding out the evening to include a full three sets of incredible music. A celebration of three local indigenous artists with nation-wide reach, this event is sure to bring the community together for an evening that won't soon be forgotten.

Artist BIOS:
Marcel Gagnon:
Born in Prince George, British Columbia, a member of the Lheidli T'enneh Band and the 16th of 20 children in his family. Gagnon was involved in music from his youth, playing for dances, weddings and private functions in central British Columbia, as well as for radio shows in Alberta and British Columbia. His career was interrupted by severe alcoholism, but after undertaking a recovery program, he recorded his breakthrough album Crazy Maker at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2001. The album was nominated for a Best Music of Aboriginal Canada award in the Juno Awards of 2002. He has produced two other albums.

In 1997, he graduated with a degree in addictions counselling. Acknowledging himself as a recovering alcoholic and a person affected by fetal alcohol syndrome disorder, Gagnon became a member of the Board of Directors of the Whitecrow Village FASD Society upon its inception in 2002. He has become a prominent advocate and counsellor for persons affected by the Canadian Indian residential school system.Currently, he is an elder of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation. He teaches spirituality, that "Man's struggle has always been dark against light. Positive versus negative. Our teaching is to recognize these two forces and which is the greater. The Medicine Man within, I refer to as Tsiyan/Grandfather. Bheni Hoolo is the darker force that wars within us. We (allow) that greater power within, Tsiyan, to help us to recognize and overcome Bheni Hoolo's influence." Gagnon is currently working with Indigenous youth in conflict with the law, presenting his program, "Awakening the Medicine Man Within," and performing music.

Saltwater Hank:
Saltwater Hank’s songs will take you on a journey from through the mountains of the Bulkley Valley to the Skeena, to the saltwater out west, down the coast and eastbound to the Kootenay’s. His stories are inspired by the people, the land and the water of the region he calls home.

Kym Gouchie:
One of Northern BC’s fastest growing recognizable Indigenous Artists, Kym Gouchie is fostering change through her music and art. Her voice can be heard around First Nations and woman’s issues, the Highway of Tears, Red Dress Campaign, using her music for reconciliation, education and awareness.

Kym Gouchie stories are woven together with threads of personal journeys which have taken her from personal tragedy to triumph and a testament to the human spirit. 

An artist with a social conscience, Kym has become a favorite among the music festival circuit with her debut album ‘Mountain of Youth’ (2014 release) which is emboldened with poignant, uplifting and inspirational lyrics. Her resonating tones of traditional first nations, folk, and country has captured the hearts from young to old and all walks of life. 

In August 2015, her single 'Sister Rain' reached #1 on the NCIFM National Aboriginal Top 40 Music Countdown and 'For The People' was selected to be included on the Truth & Reconciliation Compilation CD which was created to educate people about the Canadian Residential School experience.

Since the release of her second CD, ‘Northern Shining Star Woman’ in February 2017, Kym has been non-stop performing at Festivals such as ArtsWells;All Thing Art in Wells, BC Midsummer Music Festival in Smithers, BC World Music Festival in West Kelowna, BC, Hay Fever Festival in Grassy Plains and Robson Valley Music Festival in Dunster, BC. In 2015 she became a member of the Kh’astan Drummers in Prince George and is a sought after performer for Traditional Welcoming Ceremonies, School presentations and Cultural Gatherings. Kym also works with the Red Dress Campaign Society in Prince George and has composed the song ‘Cleansing the Highway’ which pays tribute to the murdered and missing women and girls along the Highway of Tears. This powerful song was a collaboration recorded in Toronto with the Dixon Hall Music School & in Prince George at the CFUR Radio Studio and became the final track on her latest album Northern Shining Star Woman.

An inspirational mother of four and Grandmother of nine, Kym is also a respected Elder of the Lheidli T’enneh and an Aboriginal advocate, spokeswoman and member of the Aboriginal School District Elders and Knowledge Keepers Committee in the Prince George region.

To round it all out – Kym is currently writing a one-woman play in collaboration with Michelle Thrush called ‘Her Blood Runs Through My Braids’ an expose in honouring her four Grandmothers and how their lives have taught and inspired her. Kym was raised among musicians. Inspired by her eclectic background and draws on the sometimes harsh realities of searching for her own identity as an Indigenous woman who was no stranger to adversity. Yet somehow her experiences are translated into lyrics that elevate our hearts.

A warrior of the light, Kym’s inspirational music lifts the soul beyond its fettered state along the quest of creating a better world with compassion, understanding and forgiveness, reminding us that we are all in this together.

Deep Roots Music with elements of folk, bluegrass and traditional indigenous music, stories and participatory songs with the complex instrumentation it takes to sound simply compelling." -Rae Spoon
