Visitors to nearby London, Ontario, can celebrate the holiday season with two great traditions taking place in early December.
Fanshawe Pioneer Village will host “A Visit with St. Nicholas” on Dec. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16. Families are invited to enjoy an all-you-can-eat hot pancake breakfast, followed by a baked gingerbread man to decorate for dessert. Guests will then hop aboard a horse-drawn wagon for a beautiful winter ride around the Village and visit a selection of buildings preparing for Christmas. Of course the day wouldn’t be complete without a visit from St. Nicholas himself, who drops by to see each and every child! For more information about this fun family event, please call (519) 457-1296 or visit www.fanshawepioneervillage.ca.
Visitors can also get a little holiday shopping done at the 33rd annual Christmas Craft Festival Dec. 6-9 at the Western Fairgrounds. The show will feature a wide variety of unique arts and crafts items, and admission is just $6. For details, please call (519) 679-1810 or visit www.londoncraftshows.com.
