Cowichan Valley Museum curator Kathryn Gagnon and her volunteers are readying their annual Christmas display, with a 1940s theme, to be unwrapped Nov. 25 during downtown’s light-up bash.

The total exhibit — tentatively called Winter  In Wartime — opens from 5 to 7:45 p.m. before the fireworks.

Displays, set to swing music, include Edwardian artifacts, vintage toy trains, a King’s Daughter’s Hospital exhibit with a wounded soldier, and more.
