After a long break because of COVID, Christmas festivals are back in force this holiday season. On Saturday, December 3, Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague hosted a Christmas market at the Catholic church. Visitors enjoyed free horse-drawn carriage rides through the town, and the church and adjacent hall were filled with artisans. Santa himself had a booth.
On the same day, the Huntingdon County Farmers’ Market welcomed over 1,600 shoppers to the Christmas market that took place in the Ormstown Recreation Centre. Local members of Scouts Canada had a booth outside, and there were many artisans, producers and vendors inside for holiday shopping.
