Give the gift of entertainment

Many great entertainment options are available in Salmon Arm and the Shuswap.

There’s less than a week left in which to buy Christmas gifts for the special people in our lives.

While there are many great gift-buying opportunities in Salmon Arm, if your loved ones already have all the material items they need, why not give the gift of entertainment.

The snow may be falling, but you can put summer into someone’s heart with the purchase of tickets to the annual Roots and Blues Festival.

Special earlybird member pricing is in effect until February. By buying a $10 membership you can vote at the AGM and purchase up to four tickets at tremendous savings over gate prices.

Ticket prices for the Aug. 2013 music-lovers’ feast vary, with savings for seniors and youths. Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Visit www.rootsandblues.ca to order yours. Salmon Arm Folk Music Society’s Roots and Blues Festival office will be closed Dec. 20 to Jan. 7.

Or consider a six-film pass to the Salmar Theatre Association.

The tickets never expire and you will get six tickets for the price of five. They are available at Salmar Grand Cinemas, The Salmar Classic, The Movie Company, Lucky’s in Centenoka Park Mall and Earth Art Studio off the Ross Street parking lot.

Just available in time for Christmas gift-giving are tickets to the always sold-out Shuswap Trail Party and Fundraiser that supports local greenways and trails.

Rocking out Friday, Feb. 1, the annual event features a large silent auction, locally made appies, a cash bar hosted by the Salmon Arm Fire Department, loads of photos from another year of trail projects throughout the Shuswap, and a whole lot of music and dancing.

Scarecrow’s back to pack the dance floor and talented Mike Shaver and Steph Webster of a Million Dollars in Pennies have been added to the entertainment slate.

Tickets to the deep-winter social are available at Lakeside Insurance, Salmon Arm Financial, Skookum Cycle and Ski, Ridetech and Kula Movement and Wellness.

Another gift option is an entertainment “savings” account, a cash gift earmarked for some of the great entertainment opportunities that will be provided by local talents and visiting performers in the year ahead.
