It’s kick off time for the holiday season!

indoora-skating-partyExpect politicians of every stripe to invite you to share the Season with them. First out of the gate is Indira Naidoo-Harris who has asked her constituents to join her for an afternoon of fun and excitement at her third Annual Holiday Skating Party on Saturday, December 10th.

The party starts at 12:30pm and runs until 2:20pm, at Milton Memorial Arena (77 Thompson Road South, Milton ON). Those who live in the northern part of the city get represented provincially by the Member for the Milton riding; they are sort of a political orphan.

While not related to the holiday season – it is interesting to note that both the Milton and the Burlington members of the provincial legislature are both members of the provincial cabinet.

No word yet on what the other federal and provincial politicians have planned for us.

Burlington will hold its holiday event starting at Civic Square where the Christmas tree will be lit – hopefully the Hydro crew will be able to make it work this year – something went wrong with the switch last year.

The Downtown Business Association used to support this effort financially - they had to cut back - Burlington Hydro took up the slack. So what is is that BDBA does for their members?

The holiday season decorations in Spence Smith Park are close to a must – Hydro does a superb job and seem to come up with new features every year.

Burgers galore from The Works will be handed out – hot chocolate and then the traditional tour through the city with participants will singing Carols.

We got a light sprinkle of rain last year – might have the same thing this year – but the event is a good way to spend an evening. A delightful number of people show up for the event

You won’t want to miss this great event!

Stroll - large view - packed - a bit

A light drizzle of rain last year didn’t deter several hundred people showing up for the lighting of the Christmas tree at Civic Square and the Carol stroll through the streets of the city.

The Carol Stroll Friday night is followed by the Santa Claus parade on Sunday.
