Sometimes it’s nice to escape the concrete jungle and experience the joys of a quiet, old-fashioned lifestyle. The Alight At Night Festival at Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg is the perfect mini getaway, with plenty of winter activities for everyone to enjoy. Nearly one million (we said it: one million!) Christmas lights illuminate the village for visitors, creating a spectacular sight that will surely get you in the festive spirit. Holiday music, food, and a few Christmas surprises await guests, not to mention a life-sized toy train and horse-drawn carriages to ride all evening long. Thursday, December 20, to Sunday, December 23, opens at 5 p.m. $10-$13, children under five enter free. Upper Canada Village, 13740 County Road 2, Morrisburg, www.uppercanadavillage.com. (more…)
