“Jingle Bells… jingle bells…jingle all the way….oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh…”chimes out of elementary students who are participating in this year’s Holiday Magic concert at City Hall. Running from 11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. every weekday until December 18, this annual event showcases school choirs from all across Edmonton.
I get mocked every time I say this, but I truly mean it. I love working at City Hall. No matter what time of the year, there is always something happening. You can’t help but smile when you leave your office for lunch and there are 25 elementary students caroling in the lobby.
If you work downtown, or you are in the area in the afternoon be sure to stop by and take part in the festivities. Starting on Monday, December 14, local CBC celebrities will be guest hosting the event. And since it’s the season for giving, remember to bring perishable items for the Edmonton Food Bank. A collection bin will be on site.
For those who are unable to make it downtown during the day, when you are downtown checking out some of the other winter festivities, take some time to come down to City Hall at night or on the weekends. The City Hall maintenance men have out-done themselves this year! The decorations look fabulous, and certainly put you in the holiday mood.
