Not more than a couple dozen people braved the cold, blustery temperatures Monday afternoon when the Canadian Pacific Railroad’s (CPR) Holiday Train – a magical train of lights and music – rolled into town.
Douglas County Hospital will host its 33rd annual Holiday Gala tonight, Saturday. The Holiday Gala, formerly known as the Holiday Ball, will take place at Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria starting at 6 p.m. The theme this year is “Heaven and Nature Sing.”
Despite cold and bitter temperatures, the Canadian Pacific’s “Holiday Train” tour made its way through Alexandria Monday. The Canadian Pacific Railroad train arrived in Alexandria around 1 p.m. A small group of people braved the bone-chilling weather and donated food and money to the event. Watch Wednesday's Echo Press for an update.
Santa may already be working on his Christmas list and checking it twice, but what about this year’s die-hard shoppers?
The start of the holiday shopping season – the day after Thanksgiving, which is now better known as Black Friday – is right around the corner and local retailers are gearing up.
The crisp, wintry weather may have some believing the holiday season is here, but this Friday, November 28, residents are invited to officially let the spirit of the season begin with the annual Christmas in the Fort event.
Christmas in the Fort, which includes the annual lighting ceremony of downtown Alexandria, will take place in Fort Alexandria at the Runestone Museum.
