Tree-lighting celebration planned for Anderson Farm Museum

The Dec. 9 event includes singing, hot chocolate, Santa Claus, and other family-friendly fare

A family-friendly event in Lively is slated to help usher in the Christmas season, with the Anderson Farm Museum Heritage Society hosting their 15th Annual Christmas Tree-Lighting Celebration.

The event is taking place on Dec. 9, from 6-8 p.m., at the Anderson Farm Museum, according to a media release issued by the society.

The official tree-lighting itself will take place at 6 p.m., and will be followed by Christmas songs sung by choirs from Ecole St. Paul, R.H. Murray PS, St. James School & Walden PS.  

Inside the stable, children can meet Santa Claus and everyone can enjoy free hot chocolate and coffee, cookies and candies, plus fresh popcorn, all thanks to sponsorships. 

Children can milk Northern Maple, the life-sized cow, supervised by a dairy educator, and enjoy 250ml cartons of chocolate and white milk.

Inside the granary, you will find Santa’s helpers, a display of vintage toys and woodworking projects by Walden Seniors Woodworkers, plus free refreshments.  

Outside, you can meet Walden-area volunteer firefighters with their fire trucks and enjoy winter fun by sliding behind the barn.

There will be no parking on-site at Anderson Farm Museum, but a free shuttle service will help transport people from the Walden Arena parking lot to the centre court of Anderson Farm Museum.
