Snow has arrived a bit late this year which is fantastic for those of us who shovel or travel the highways regularly…not so good for those the earn their living plowing snow, many winter sports,visitors looking for that winter wonderland and those who just love the snow.
Once again we must remember that the days are much shorter so it does get dark very early about 5 pm. If you are coming to Almaguin Highlands for the day to enjoy the outdoors allow yourself time in the morning and early afternoon to view nature. Also if you are coming to the area for Real Estate showings should be booked early in the day so a good viewing of the exteriors is possible. Many new listings have become available, so just drop me line on what you are looking for and I will send you the information on listings that meet your needs.
The area Santa parades, Christmas Tree lighting and Holiday Festivities will soon be in various Villages of Almaguin so plan to take in a event or two. If you live in Almaguin shopping local supports jobs, local businesses and organizations which keep our communities thriving.
Here I am as Mrs Claus at our Burk’s Falls Santa Parade… and no that is not a lemon I am handing out it is a clementine and a candy cane. All the children visit Santa after the Parade, then Hot Chocolate and cookies at Legion where the parade ends. A wonderful outing for families whether you are local and in the parade or visiting to view it.
Other local and interesting family outings may include a horse pulled wagon through the snow laden trees. Just outside of Burk’s Falls you will find the Hammond Family Ranch so book your sleigh-ride soon. Although it is raining today and the snow has dissipated it will be back by next week and they should be ready for December bookings. Visit their website at: Hammond Family Ranch
