The Timberline Country Christmas is taking place in nearby Maple Ridge for 20 days next month.

It will be held at Timberline Ranch, which is a 73-acre camp and retreat center. During the Christmas season, the ranch is decorated with light-filled trees, interactive light scenes, and a variety of family-friendly activities.

There is set to be musical entertainment, activities such as cookie decorating and crafts, wagon rides and a petting zoo. There will also be pony rides for children between the ages of 2 and 12 for $5 extra. The Timberline Café will be open throughout the 20-day event.

Local businesses and organizations can also enter the Christmas Tree Decorating Contest. Each tree is $50 and is decorated in a Christmas theme. Prizes will be awarded to the top three trees. Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their business and will receive four tickets for the Country Christmas, as well as an invite to the tree decorating party.

Some of the participants in the contest may be Abbotsford businesses who may turn to banner printing firms to decorate their trees.

The Timberline Country Christmas will be held at the Timberline Ranch from December 1 to 19. Admission on weekdays is $11, or $9 for children between the ages of 1 and 5, while weekends cost $13 and $11 respectively. Call 604-463-9278 for more information.
