About the event
The Township of Minden Hills welcomes you to our Christmas event on Saturday 18 November 2023 with the “Santa Claus Parade” and “Christmas in the village”. The parade will start at 11:00 AM at the S.G. Nesbitt Memorial Arena, marching along Parkside Street, heading south on Bobcaygeon Road, and finishing at the Township municipal parking lot off St. Germaine Street.
“Christmas in the Village” will be held at the Heritage Village of the Minden Hills Cultural Centre on the same day from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Admission is by donation. Santa will be in the village after the parade to hear children’s wishes and have photos taken until 2:00 PM. Visitors are free to explore and shop at the local artisan market. They can enjoy homemade baked goods available for sale in the Bowron House and browse the old-fashioned candy shop in the Welch Room.
There will be a Santa letter writing station as well as Christmas ornament crafting booths. A live music performer, Eric Swanson, will sing and play popular Christmas songs between 1:00PM and 4:00PM. Also, a book sale by the Friends of the Haliburton County Public Library (FOHCPL) will be available on site. The Ages Jameison Gallery will be open and feature the current exhibit, Shifting Lens, by the Ontario Society of Artists – Eastern Hub.
