What’s going on THURSDAY, DEC. 17

The Creativision & Hintonburg Happening’s Holiday Sweater Celebration
Forget door-to-door carolling, this is your opportunity to take your Ugly Christmas Sweater judging from storefront-to-storefront. On Thursday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m., join Hintonburg Happening and Creativision and check out the participating storefronts in Hintonburg – cast your vote for the Most Decorative, Ugliest Overall, and Largest Sweater.

Starting in the west end of Wellington Street, meet at Bridgehead (1277 Wellington Street at Caroline), then head east towards The Hintonburg Public House (1020 Wellington Street). There, the winners will be revealed and all can participate in Christmas merriment – and maybe have a drink or two. See Facebook for more details.

Pop up vintage sale and party
