Winter Party in the Park delivers warmth & happiness

Brantwood Sleigh Ride
You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for the Annual Winter Party in the Park on January 18. Special guests Mayor Jim Watson and MP, Paul Dewar came to join the festivities as judges for our inaugural Soup Cook-off. The spirit of the event was stoked by horse drawn carriage rides, hot chocolate, children‘s activities, good company and a golden fire. Amidst the air, sounds of children's laughter, skates hitting the ice and friendly neighbourly talk warmed our hearts. Appetites were quenched with homemade savoury soups, delectable sweet delights and good ol’ fashioned hot dogs. It’s the magic of the simple moments that brings us back each year to spend time with our neighbours at this lovely occasion.
