“It’s another opportunity to find a unique item while out and about shopping in Stettler,” explains Donna Morris, project manager with the the Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development.

“It encourages people to stay in Stettler for seasonal shopping instead of heading out of town, and while they’re here, there are some fun activities,” Morris said.

In its second year, Morris says Miracle on 50th has grown as more and more businesses are partaking in sales and offers in their stores.

“We want people to help our businesses grow and showcase what Stettler has to offer and what people can get in their hometown.

“Many of our businesses can also order something in, just like any other online order,” Morris said.

Morris says they are also working on a self-guided light tour that will kick off on Dec. 14th, called a twinkle tour, where people can view homes that are lit up around town.

She encourages residents who have light displays on their homes to contact the Stettler Regional Board of Trade or the FCSS office so they are included on a map that is being created.

Maps, which include lit-up homes will be made available on the Stettler Regional Board of Trade’s web site, Facebook page, or in hard copy at their office. For more information, contact 403-742-3181.
