The 100-year-old clock tower at the Canadian Pacific Railway station downtown is starting to look a lot like Christmas.
The Downtown Moose Jaw Association along with CP Railway and a number of community members got together to decorate the clock tower, which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.
The decorations include a star that was built by local metal worker Brysen Bert, lights from CP Railway, Yvette Moore put together the Christmas trees, and John Trodd helped with the installation.
“There are lots of players whenever you have to make something like this happen,” Moore said.
“It's just so wonderful to see everybody come on board and anything we can do to light up what we have and really celebrate the clock tower, which is such an important part of our historical architecture downtown.”
Decorating up the clock tower brings back a long-standing tradition of having the CP Railway station decked up for the holidays.
“CPR used to put up a huge Christmas tree right down on their grounds, but it's not quite possible now with the parking situation and everything there. So, we thought this was the next best thing,” Moore said.
Lighting up the clock tower now adds to the holiday feel downtown with the lights down Main Street and the Holiday Train rolls through on Dec. 6.
