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 20th, 2018.

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.

Parents with young children and seniors will have priority seating this year; with frequent stops to allow for everyone to have their turn. As in previous years, the overflow of adults and older children can walk behind wagon – singing all the way!

Bring your best singing voices, your bells (and any other musical instrument!) for an evening of favorite holiday carols! Song-sheets will be provided, and all are invited to join in singing popular carols.

[Santa's Hat, red with white trim] We may even 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 at about 7:15, where there will be hot drinks (hot cocoa) and tasty treats. Please feel free to bring holiday cookies or treats for sharing at the party.

For those who want more sleigh ride time, the horses and sleigh will continue to give rides until around 8pm.

For reference, here’s a PDF of the copy of the map. Please appreciate that depending on weather and road conditions, the map is only an approximation of the route – but we’ll try to stick to it!
