The Christmas Committee has been diligently meeting since April and they are soon ready to launch their regional marketing campaign promoting An Oceanside Christmas.
Chair, Carrie Powell-Davidson said the committee is ready to get to work.
“We have all the media represented and they are poised to start promoting Parksville, Qualicum Beach and area as the place to be this Christmas.”
She added representatives from organizations, businesses and groups are providing input as well as helping to get the word out.
The Christmas Committee is not an event planning group — they are a marketing group. Powell-Davidson said while most of the people on the committee are involved in planning their individual events, the goal is to identify everything happening over the six weeks leading up to Christmas and then promote that as one big package.
To submit an event for inclusion, send the name of the event, when it is, where it is and contact information to Powell-Davidson at email@example.com by October 24.
