Celebrate Prince George a Success says Mayor
Prince George, B.C. – The Celebrate Prince George Winter Festival is over, and Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall is thrilled with the way it all turned out.
“It was a great party, a great celebration” says the Mayor. While the celebrations officially wrapped up with a party in the Canada Games Plaza on Saturday, there were some events under the umbrella of the festival which took place on Sunday.
The whole idea of the Festival was to bring back the spirit of the 2015 Canada Winter Games “It turned out better than I had thought it might” says Mayor Hall, “I had pretty high expectations and it went way above that.”
He says the buzz in the plaza on Saturday brought back memories “You could feel it, it was almost like it was Canada Winter Games all over again.”
This February Festival may not be a one shot deal says the Mayor “We would like to look at having it as a yearly event and tying it in some way to the 2015 Games, but I think it’s all part of the momentum we wanted to build and to just celebrate Prince George. It’s a good time of the year for it, it’s February and maybe it takes care of some of the winter blues.”
