MasqueParade brings magic to Spirit Square

The Snow King cometh.

The Snow King cometh.

IT WAS A MARVELLOUS NIGHT FOR A MOONDANCE last Saturday night as Golden came together in Spirit Square to celebrate the arrival of the Snow King and Lady Spring. The couple wasn’t shy to show their affection for each other, embracing in a hug and kiss as they met each other behind the fire. Woodland creatures, Alice and Wonderland creatures and even Golden’s Mayor, Christina Benty, paid their respects to the larger-than-life couple in the centre of Spirit Square. The crowd showed off their creativity with homemade lanterns, painted faces, masks and costumes, making it easy to forget you were celebrating with your friends and neighbours right at home on the banks of the Kicking Horse River.
