Holiday spirit on display during Ormstown’s Enchanted Christmas

Ormstown revelled in the holiday spirit on December 10 as the municipality held its traditional Enchanted Christmas event. Lambton Street was closed to traffic and visitors enjoyed an array of activities, ranging from decorating ugly Christmas sweater cookies to roasting marshmallows and smores over crackling fire pits, sipping much-appreciated hot cider, joining pick-up street hockey, having horse-drawn carriage rides, and much more. Oh, and those clever enough to find the hints hidden in main-street stores were able to meet with a certain jovial old elf and his jolly assistant. Five-year-old twins Ethan and Janelle, as well as their cousin Keeva, managed to find and share Christmas wishes with Santa before he returned to the North Pole. The goal of the event was to support Ormstown businesses while encouraging visitors to shop local, says Zoë Gillies, who runs the Grenier de Zoë thrift store and volunteers with the Loisirs Ormstown Activities group which organized the event in collaboration with the municipality.
