Festival of Northern Lights

The Festival of Northern Lights is a beautiful presentation of Christmas lights near the Sydenham River in Owen Sound. The event takes place for six weeks from November 14 until January 4th. Come and take a stroll, or even a horse-drawn carriage ride and see the more than 25 kilometers of colourful light displays. This is the 27th season for this wonderful holiday event!

Help for the holidays

The Holidays are about giving and sharing. There are Holiday Food Baskets and Christmas Baskets available for residents of Grey and Bruce. Most agencies work on a first come first serve basis so it is best to sign up early. If you are fortunate enough that you don’t need help this holiday season you may want to think about helping out a family in need by making a donation. Here are some links to agencies in Grey and Bruce that offer resources to people who need support.
