What a great way to start the holidays!

If you’re able to volunteer any time with set-up, cleanup, making treats or hot chocolate, or just have questions about the event, please let Jim Cocks know at or (613) 728-7881. We thank-you in advance. One can never have too many elves!

The sleigh is currently scheduled to depart:
From: The Fieldhouse
When: 6:15pm – 8:00pm
Date: Thursday, December 21, 2017.

We’ll update the status on the website if there are delays due to weather or other problems.

If the horses are unavailable, we’ll just meet at the Fieldhouse for a party.

Weather permitting, the plan is to have the horse-drawn sleigh gliding through the neighbourhood starting at around 6:15 p.m. at the Fieldhouse.

Due to safety concerns for our children with overcrowding on the wagon, the sleigh ride provider is asking adults and older children to walk behind wagon. Mothers with young children and seniors will have priority seating. Parents are asked to help volunteers with supervision.

Bring your Christmas bells and best singing voices for an evening of Christmas cheer!

[Santa's Hat, red with white trim] We hope to have carols along the way and may even work in a stop at a place reputed to be the local hideout of Old St. Nick.

[Christmas sugar cookies] The evening should wrap up at the Fieldhouse, where there will be hot drinks and treats. Please feel free to bring Christmas cookies or snacks for sharing at the party.

Jim Cocks has very generously donated his time, yet again, to organize the event.

For reference, here’s a PDF of the copy of the old map. Please appreciate that the map is only an approximation of the route; Pontiac street is now blocked off so things will be a bit different this year.
