Tis the Season and a great time to get into the holiday spirit with a magical journey through the Trail Capital of Canada. Start with a drive through the Uxbridge Optimist Fantasy of Lights, a trail of brilliant holiday displays winding through Uxbridge’s Elgin Park. The park is open nightly until January 2 from 6 to 9:30 p.m.

Continue your journey through the charming, historic downtown along the Holiday Shopping Trail to see many of the boutique shop windows decked out with themes such as “What Would Christmas be Under the Sea” presented by Sugar FX, “A Canadian Family Christmas” presented by Presents Presents Presents, and “T’was the Night Before Christmas” presented by the Lemonade Stand.

Grab a parking spot close by and take a stroll along Brock Street to browse the beautiful scenes and pick-up unique gifts.

While you’re there:

Or make it a full festive feast from one of the many local food establishments in the area. If you prefer to indulge in a local brew, visit the Second Wedge Brewing Company for a special 5 ounce beer taster for a toonie, or stay-a-while to enjoy a selection of different brews with a full flight!

Enjoy this safe trail of festivities the family will love, and don’t forget to post photos along the way using the hashtag #HolidayTrailUxbridge.
