The holiday season in Vankleek Hill kicks off with the Christmas Craft Fair on November 24-26. The event, hosted by Excellent Events, will be held at the Vankleek Hill community centre with the following hours: Friday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission fee, but people are invited to make a donation to the Vankleek Hill food bank. Samme Putzel of Excellent Events says there will be 25 vendors, both local favourites and new additions. There will also be food on-hand provided by The Food Truck.
Parade of Lights
The following Friday, on December 1, Vankleek Hill’s Main Street will be lit by the Parade of Lights. Departing from the VCI parking lot at 7 p.m., floats will make their way through residential roads and come back through Main Street. During the event, the post office will be collecting letters to Santa. This year’s theme is Memories of Christmas Past.
Rounding out the series of activities is Santa’s Breakfast on December 10 at the community centre. Santa is inviting kids to meet him that morning between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Evelyn Bernique and friends are working with the event. The cost is $8 a person with all proceeds going to Vankleek Hill minor sports.
