Christmas is coming to the Highlands!

22 Nov

We have lots of Christmas activities lined up for this weekend and most of them include an older gentleman in a nice red suit…


Friday, November 22nd – in the Haliburton Santa Claus Parade – 6:30pm – downtown Haliburton

Saturday, November 23rd – in the Minden Santa Claus Parade – 11:30am – downtown Minden

On Saturday, November 23rd Santa is also planning a visit to the Rails End Gallery in Haliburton Village from noon until 2 pm. You can visit with Santa, have your picture taken (optional) by Schell Photography for just $5 and enjoy crafts with Rails End Volunteers. All are welcome! Hot cocoa and cookies too! (Thank you to the Haliburton BIA and Haliburton Lions for partnering on this fun event!)

If you don’t wish to see the big guy in the red suit perhaps this suits you better…
