Free movie for five-year-olds and under

South Cariboo Early Years Centre hosting a Frosty the Snowman movie

By Melissa Smalley

Youngsters around the 100 Mile House community are invited to participate in a free Christmas movie next week at the South Cariboo Theatre.

The holiday event on Dec. 14, which is open to children up to five years old, is being hosted by the South Cariboo Early Years Centre as a chance for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to enjoy some festive fun with their caregivers, co-ordinator Erica Henderson says.

It’s just about getting the families together and giving moms and dads and the little ones a chance to see Santa.”

The event runs from 11 a.m. to noon, and will feature the cartoon Frosty the Snowman.

It’s a good choice for little ones as it only runs 24 minutes long, Henderson says, adding it will include popcorn and a juice box.

Santa will be on hand for a visit with the children, and will be handing out gifts to little ones who participate.

Organizers are hoping a lot of parents, grandparents and caregivers come out to the free Christmas movie, but Henderson notes it is an event meant for children five years and under.

For more information, call the South Cariboo Early Years Centre at 250-395-5155.
