how best to enjoy your Santa Day

On Saturday, November 25, 2017, Santa Day will effectively take over our village, to the delight of all! We’ve been consulting with Santa’s Elves and here are a few tips and tricks to make your visit to Fenelon Falls on Santa Day the best it can be.

Video Image on Colborne Street will house the main hub of Santa Day organization, along with the Lost and Found. It is great relief to know there is one spot to go to if you have any questions, need any assistance, or if you have misplaced that incredible scarf that you were positive you just had!

Parking is not an issue if you plan ahead. Take note of the signs posted about the village before you leave your car, especially the No Parking signs and times posted on the light poles on the main street. There are public parking lots behind Colborne St. north of the locks, on either side, just behind the stores on the street, accessible from Colborne and Francis Streets. There is also the old arena by the Curling Club that is available, as well as the parking lots by the beach and Garnet Graham Park.

Road closures are planned as usual. The city’s new website made it easy to find the notice…Water St. will be closed from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm for the daytime activities and Lindsay St. – Colborne St. will be closed from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm for the parade. The Parade route runs through the heart of the village. Cars will be cleared from the Lindsay/Colborne corridor starting around 4 PM and the road will not reopen until the parade and fireworks finish. If you are needing to make a quick exit after the fireworks, be sure to park on the same side of the locks as your destination.

SANTA IS COMING!!! Santa will be receiving visitors at Stewart Morrison Insurance office on Colborne St. Santa needs to get ready for the parade so be sure line up to get your photo with Santa before 3:30 pm.

Use this information as your activity guide or pick up a printed brochure at the first place you spot one! For young families, Pharmasave has a Family Friendly Station for your needs. There is also an actual Town Crier, live and in person, who will be announcing festive fun all day long. Be sure to say hi!

The Parade commences at 5:00pm SHARP! Scope out your place along the route and get ready for the dazzling lights of the Nighttime Parade. During the parade the clowns with the flashing lights will gladly accept your kind donations. Watch for the Fireworks at 6:00pm at the locks!

This incredible, popular, amazing, awesome day is TOTALLY FREE FOR ALL thanks to Santa Day volunteers and supporters, along with the business community of Fenelon Falls and the surrounding areas. Santa Day is a time to celebrate and practice the art of giving, sharing, joy and comfort. Let’s celebrate together in each and every smile passed from one person to another.

Happy Santa Day to one and all!!
