Bundle up, bring your camera, and come down to Centriller Square at Lakeshore Road West and Jones Street across from Sobey’s. Experience the mirth and merriment of an old-fashioned Bronte Christmas during the Bronte Business Improvement Area’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 21, from 4:00-6:30 PM, brought to you by the merchants of the BIA with support from our sponsors.
Explore, celebrate, shop and dine in Bronte Village, Oakville’s waterfront destination. From 2:00-5:00 PM, enjoy the Ha’Penny Harkers Victorian Carollers as they roam the village greeting shoppers and store owners.
From 4:00 pm, gather the family at Centriller Square to visit and take your own pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Enjoy the sounds of the holidays courtesy of Audioman’s Retro Rock Lounge. Bring the kids to enjoy some holiday crafts and balloons sculptures. Capture the magic by taking your own photos of your children in Santa’s lap or dancing with Santa for that once in a lifetime memory. Where else do kids get to dance with Santa…only in Bronte Village!
