With the short days of November slowly bringing us towards the snows of December it's a good time to look at all of the events upcoming in December in the Knowlton area. So many visitors come to Knowlton during the holidays for the Festival of Lights, for the skating beside the Mill Pond, for the wonderful shopping in the boutiques of Knowlton and to experience the Victorian Christmas that Knowlton is famous for.

The village is nice in quiet once the snow starts to settle but there are plenty of things to do and see throughout the month of December both before and after Christmas.

December Ice.

December Ice
When the snow storms have passed and the sun peeks
out from over The Glen we can sometimes be treated to icicles forming on the fragile
fingers of the naked hedges along the fences and fields of Lac Brome. Delicate
patterns are created turning the frozen branches into what appears to be glistening
angel wings draped over the trees.

Winter Fireworks in Knowlton!As part of the month long Festival of Lights the village is planning their second annual winter fireworks display. The show is simply spectacular as the fireworks light up the village sky and sparkle over the ColdBrook Park. Last year's fireworks were a huge success and the streets were full of people who braved the chilly temperatures to see the show. It is rare to see fireworks so close to the village and it is really a fantastic show as the fireworks are set to music. Bring a chair and a thermos of eggnog!See Previous Winter Fireworks

Just a little correction : the entrance price for the Polar Express is actually going to be 2$. It's a special price for the holiday season...
