Children will be delighted to catch an early glimpse of Santa in towns and villages throughout Nova Scotia. For a unique spin on the Santa Claus visit, Mahone Bay will be decorated with figures of the Father Christmas Festival from November 29 – December 7. This one-of-a-kind Nova Scotia event fills the town with jolly faces for kids’ activities and horse-drawn carriage rides. Or for Christmas entertainment, take them to Norm Foster’s play, Dear Santa, at the Eastern Front Theatre from December 11-28 in Dartmouth.
From Christmas concerts and holiday theatre, to boutique gift shops and winter fun activities, Wolfville: A Christmas Tradition is a holiday destination for all near the Bay of Fundy. The spirited lineup of Nova Scotia holiday events includes traditional family favourites, plus unique ones like the Christmas Bird Count and the 4km Resolution Run/Walk. Events are underway and run through January 1, 2009.
Don’t forget that December marks the official start of Nova Scotia lobster season, too. Whether entertaining friends and family at home or dining out, Nova Scotia cuisine is a holiday event in itself!
