I will be demonstrating again this year at the Saugeen Conservation Authority's 'Christmas in the Country' event over this coming weekend.
Friday, Nov. 26 (5-10pm)
Saturday, Nov. 27th (2-10pm)
Sunday, Nov. 28th (2-7pm)

Headquarters Conservation Area
(south of Hanover off of Grey Rd. #10)

Admission: Adults $7.00, kids $2.00, under 5 years FREE!

Come out to this enchanting event, featuring thousands of lights and hundreds of candle lanterns in a natural park setting. Stroll through the grounds and enjoy the various activities in each building.

This is an OUTDOOR event - so dress for the weather! My normal demonstration period is about 4 hours, so expect I will be active in the middle of the posted event hours each day. One of the stranger part of this event is that it is primarily a nightime 'festival of lights' kind of thing. I will be located in the 'Pioneer Encampment' part of the grounds, so working under candle / lamp light. Expect to see a Settlement Era presentation, in terms of costume, equipment and type of work undertaken.
