Winterfest Candlelit Winter Walk –
Friday February 3, 2017 from 7:30 – 9:00 PM
A one and one half kilometre portion of the trail in the Maitland Woods will be transformed by the flickering beauty of candlelight. After the walk, come in to enjoy a cup of hot cider or cocoa and a cookie (coin donation).
The Maitland Trail Association organizes this annual event as part of the Town of Goderich’s Winterfest, and it is always a magical adventure. Participants can set out from the trail entrance at the east end of the Columbus Hall parking lot (Parson’s Court) anytime between 7:30 and 9:00 PM.
Everyone who has their own candle lanterns (home-made or bought) is encouraged to bring them and set them out somewhere along the trail, to add to the magic of the experience.
NEW THIS YEAR– A procession of lanterns will begin from the hall at 7:00 pm. Arrive at 6:30 PM to assemble in the cloak room at Knight’s of Columbus hall.
Come and find out for yourself why people are eager to take part year after year after year!
Volunteers are welcome.
