Despite The Cold Conditions, The Christmas Stroll Continues

Posted: Updated:

This morning, the low temperature in Great Falls was colder than the South Pole at the same time, so obviously we're dealing with some serious winter weather.  Despite the frigid conditions, the Great Falls Christmas Stroll will continue.

"Yes it's cold so we hope people will come down and help support the businesses.  A lot of the businesses will have hot chocolate.  There's a lot of indoor activities happening but if you do come down, please dress warm because of course it's very cold out," said Chelle Feist, DGFA Board Member.

To deal with the cold, parking has been condensed to a few blocks so you'll have less of a walk.  Most events will be inside, such as the kid's activities at the children's museum.  The biggest concern was the polar plunge, but the staff is prepared and ready to go.

"That was our deciding point when we were going to postpone or not, was the polar plunge, and they said, because we were worried about them, they said they were good to go and it actually can kind of be a logistical nightmare to postpone even a week," said Feist.

The Show will still go on so make sure you stay safe if you head out to the event.  When wind chills reach negative 45, frostbite can occur in as little as 10 minutes, so dash between indoor activities.
