A charming area of Drummondville is turning into a Christmas village, decked out in thousands of lights, 25,000 of them to be exact.

The site will be equipped with outdoor fireplaces, hot cocoa for the kids, mulled wine for the big kids, sleigh rides, a general store specializing in Christmas treats and knick-knacks, and an artisan market.

According to the village’s website, all activities follow COVID-19 health protocols and restrictions.

Admission is free for kids aged two and under, $15 for children aged three to 12, $16.09 for teens, and $20 for adults. A family pass is available for $50.

Here’s a teaser video from the Christmas village’s 2019 edition. Expect similar activities and lights this time around.
