It will be a very merry time at Virden's Country Christmas!
The weekend will be chock full of cheerful events starting with the tree lighting ceremony, hosted by Miss Virden 2018, on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m., which will be followed by the 12th annual Lighted Christmas Parade at 7:30 p.m. Look for Santa on the last float and visit him after the parade at his house on the Square.
Families can search for special Christmas rocks all around the Square to win a prize. Hop on the Polar Express Train for a free ride around the Square. Stroll through the Nativity Walk to see hundreds of nativity scenes. Head to the Hall of Trees to view beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and centerpieces that are up for bids. Shop the Christmas Market for unique crafts, specialty items and locally grown produce.
Saturday morning, have breakfast with Santa at the Virden Firehouse. Then, take an old-fashioned horse drawn Christmas wagon ride!
