Horses decked out in festive wear in the parade.This is a merry weekend that even Scrooge would love, filled with twinkling lights, a magical parade, sing along, house tour and lots more fun entertainment. Activities take place both in town and at Billings Farm & Museum, where the farmhouse is decked out 19th Century style and there are holiday programs for all ages. Plan to stay at Maple Leaf Inn and you’ll be just a quick drive to all the activity. (You’ll discover things are pretty festive around here too!). Below are a few of the events that are scheduled.
