Bronte Creek Provincial Park’s Victorian Christmas Giveaway

November 22, 2015

Halton Region has just been blanketed by its first layer of snow this season, outdoor holiday lights are being hung and kids everywhere are eagerly anticipating Santa’s arrival. If you (like me) cringe at the thought of taking your family to a crowded mall to wait in line for hours, burdened by heavy coats and squirmy kids, for your 30 second visit with Santa, take heart. There is another option.

Bronte Creek Provincial Park’s Victorian Christmas offers visitors the chance to experience an old-fashioned Christmas, complete with a year 1900 heritage home decked out for the holidays, traditional games, crafts, songs and activities (and baking!).  In addition, visitors have the opportunity to visit a sweet little rustic cabin on the property, enticed by the smell of apple cider and the sounds of jingle bells and a a cheerful “ho ho ho” chuckle. Yes, Santa is in residence at Bronte Creek, and instead of this:

Victorian-garbed volunteers- really add to the atmosphere!

Old-fashioned games! Show kids what children used to do for fun in the days of yore.

Sound about right? Christmas as it should be enjoyed, with family, old-fashioned hospitality, games and fun, in a relaxed and peaceful setting? AND with the opportunity to combine outdoor activity (wagon rides, skating rink and tour of the barn?) If you’re nodding your head, then you won’t want to miss this giveaway. We are giving away ONE family pass and Santa visit to a lucky SOHM!

    Great review! We visit Brobte Creek all the tune, but have never visited Santa! We’ll be going this year and would love to win the family pass! 🙂
