The Red Deer Downtown Business Association is organizing a North Pole Stroll for this Saturday, with Christmas carolers performing at various locations, and live musicians scheduled for City Roast Coffee, Bistro on Gaetz, Hudson Madison, La Casa Pergola and Redstone Grill. There will be free photos at Century Centre on Little Gaetz from 1 to 4 p.m., and kids karaoke at The Hub on Ross from 2 to 5 p.m.

Santa Claus will greet children in the Towne Centre Mall between 4 and 6 p.m., and Alberta Art and Drafting Supplies will provide cider, cookies and face-painting throughout the day. There will also be food samples at Ten Thousand Villages and Taste of Europe.

Many shops will offer in-store specials, and a passport promotion will allow members of the public to collect stamps at participating retail and coffee shop locations for a chance to win hourly prizes and a $1,000 grand prize.

Some businesses will remain open until 9 p.m.
