The township of Minden Hills is encouraging families to continue their holiday traditions this Saturday.

The town’s Santa Claus parade takes place Nov. 19, starting at 11 a.m.  The parade will begin at the S.G Nesbitt Memorial Arena parking lot, continue along Parkside Street and head south on Bobcaygeon Road, before finishing at the municipal parking lot off St. Germaine Street. Look out for rolling road blocks.

After the parade, families are encouraged to visit with Santa Claus at the Minden Hills Cultural Centre. Christmas in the Village is back from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

“The whole family can enjoy the outdoor Christmas artisan market, tour the heritage village decorated for the holidays, try some delicious homemade baked goods for sale in the Bowron House, explore the Old-Fashioned Candy Shop, visit our Santa letter writing station and sip hot chocolate and apple cider,” the township said.

Admission to Christmas in the Village is by donation.
