Olde Fashioned Christmas 2014
The Olde Fashioned Christmas annual event will consist of carriage rides along Main Street in the downtown up to Cowling Park. The downtown businesses and many non-profit organizations hold open house with refreshments and special holiday pricing. Many local London businesses and churches participate in this family event. It is a time when we open our arms and hearts to embrace family, friends, and cherished memories that have become not just a part of ourselves but also have become interwoven with this great place we call home.
After all John McLeod wrote in his inspirational poem "Home is where the heart is". (Contact us to register or get for more information)
