Canatara’s Christmas on the Farm returning to ‘traditional roots’

Canataras Christmas on the Farm returning to traditional roots

After two years of altered formats, the holiday family event Christmas on the Farm will return to Canatara Park on Dec. 2 and 3.

Held in co-operation between the City of Sarnia and the Seaway Kiwanis Club, the event is going back to its pre-pandemic roots with horse and carriage rides, craft making, ice carving demonstrations, train rides and roasted chestnuts.

“We’re so excited to be returning to our traditional celebration of the holiday season with a free event featuring all the old favorites our community enjoys, alongside some new attractions that are sure to delight all ages,” said Sarnia’s Community Services Co-ordinator Rachel Vigileux.

Some new additions to this year’s event are a new story time featuring Mrs. Claus, letters to Santa, a character meet and greet on Saturday and a cookie giveaway. And as always, the Children’s Animal Farm will be open and free to visitors throughout both days and there will be an appearance from the big man in red himself.

Christmas on the Farm takes place on Friday, Dec. 2 from 5:30 to 9 pm and on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 am to 2 pm

Cathcart Boulevard west of Lake Chipican Drive will be closed at 3 pm on Dec. 2 to allow for the preparation of the event. The event is free, though food and beverage stations will be selling goods.
