Celebrate Christmas with us!

December 5 to 22, 2020


Due to the pandemic, the Municipality of Chelsea's Recreation Department is offering you a reinvented Magical Christmas this year! It is essential for us to keep the holiday spirit alive while ensuring everyone's safety. So come one, come all!  Enter our Christmas decoration contest, watch the Christmas parade from the comfort of your own home and participate in our tree course.



From December 5 to 22, 2020

Take part in the trail to find the Christmas trees in the municipality that have a unique special star! It will have a little something unique that the merchant, school or daycare will have put on it (a logo, a drawing, a slogan, a word or a sentence). Don't get caught, each place has the same star shape but with a unique touch! Write down your discoveries in the notebook.

You are invited to drive around the territory in your car and find the largest number of fir trees with a star.

To help you, a map is given to you inside the participation booklet, mentioning where the trees and their stars are located.

For each destination made, note what is found inside the star in your participation booklet.


Prizes to be won

By participating, you have a chance to win a gift basket from participating establishments. The draw will take place on December 23, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. and the winner will be contacted by phone.

You have until midnight on December 22 to return the booklet by email at


Have a good course!
