Christmas in Burlington
Being in the center of the Golden Horseshoe are of the GTA, Burlington is close to both Toronto and Niagara as well as other Lake Ontario area destinations. There are many Christmas and holiday related activities in the region from the Christmas parades and festivities to the awesome Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls.
Burlington captures the Christmas spirit with many local events such as the Singleton Family Lights On Christmas Display located in Campbellville and a tradition now for over 30 years. The Singletons share their love for Christmas each year by putting on an impressive Christmas display featuring lights, music, animated boxes, giant candy canes, snowmen, reindeer and holiday joy.
The Singleton Family Christmas Festival of Lights is open to the public free of charge from mid-November to the end of December and they accept donations for the Halton Women’s Place for its Children’s programs. The display is located south of Highway 401 (exit 312) in Campbellville at 8565 Guelph Line.
The United Church also holds Christmas Concerts such as Saturday evening November 27 at the 375 Plains Road East location (7:30 pm to 9 pm).
Friday December 3, 2010 at 8 pm, the Gingerbread Village and Tree Lighting Event is being held at 422 Pearl Street. This year there will be twelve gingerbread houses decorated to the nines, so sip some cider and hear the Victorian carolers share holiday songs. The official tree lighting occurs at 8:30pm to light up the Village Square.
Sunday December 5, 2010 features the Christmas Parade in Burlington at 2 p.m. which starts from the Burlington Mall, Prospect Street and Guelph Line. This year there are over 65 entries in the parade.
