Christmas arrives at Lansdowne! The festive season officially begins this evening (Dec 1st) with the lighting of one of Ottawa’s largest Christmas trees. Following the Christmas Tree Lighting shortly after 6:00 p.m., enjoy an evening with the family at Lansdowne full of FREE entertainment — including music, FREE hot chocolate and holiday drinks. And you can stay warm by one of the fire pits. No Christmas event would be complete without a visit from the jolly old man himself as Santa Claus will be there to kick off the holiday season.
Also a reminder that the Lansdowne Christmas Market returns for another year starting Saturday morning December 2nd.. The Christmas Market runs for three weekends in December at Lansdowne (2/3, 9/10, and 23) from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. inside the Aberdeen Pavilion. The Christmas market features over 120 vendors of locally-grown and locally-made food, arts and crafts, Christmas knick-knacks, sweet treats, and a lot more! (OSEG news release)
