It's another wonderful weekend in Haldimand County with so many great events to attend!
I'll be starting off Saturday with the Caledonia BIA for free photos with Santa! From 9 in the morning until 4 bring the family to Darrick Davidson Mechanical Services Ltd, 49 Argyle Street, Caledonia for your free picture with St. Nick! From there I'll be heading over to the small town of York for the Annual Christmas Bazaar at York United Church. Get your Holiday shopping out of the way by shopping the vendors, enjoy lunch and refreshments all while supporting the Church!
At 2 o'clock the Stoney Creek Santa Claus Parade will be getting underway! I'll be making my way over to Cardinal Newman Secondary School where we will be getting the cruiser parade ready. Make sure you give the cruiser a big wave when you see it go by! Once the parade finishes up I’ll be making my way to “The Alpacas at Eighth and Mud” at 232 Eighth Road East on Stoney Creek Mountain! Santa will be there from 10am-5pm and will be taking pictures with kids and their families! Make sure you bring a donation to be made to “Out of The Cold” and “The Shoe-Box” non-profit organizations – this will get you your free photo with Santa and...an Alpaca!
On Sunday Six Nations Bingo Hall will be holding bingo games all day long. They're located at 2585 Chiefswood Road in Ohsweken. The best part about this bingo hall is that they always donate 40% of all their profits to non-profit and educational organizations in the community!
Sunday afternoon will be spent at the Cottonwood Mansion for their Annual Open House! Built in 1860 the Victorian Styled Mansion is full of Haldimand County history – they've even decorated the mansion for Christmas in traditional Victorian style. Tours of the mansion are free and will take place any time between 11am-4pm. From there I'll be heading over to Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue at 1652 Concession 10 Walpole, Hagersville! Their annual Christmas Open House invites you meet the horses, check out the ranch, shop for your Christmas Gifts and help to support the rescue!
Stop by any of these events to say hi to me at the cruiser and to get a 929 The Grand Bumper Sticker! You can also drop off any new, unwrapped gifts to donate to our Grand Gift of Christmas! Learn more about The Grand's Gift of Christmas here!
If you'd like to invite the 92.9 The Grand Events Cruiser to your non-profit or charitable event, send me the details! All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org
See ya out there!
