28th Annual Christmas at Presqu'ile Arts and Craft Show

I was going to go to the Opening Night Celebration of the 28th Annual Christmas at Presqu’ile Art and Craft Show, but with the windstorm and bad weather the power to the park had been knocked out and the opening was cancelled.

So we decided to go today to see the exhibit.

I had already been warned about how long the lines can be and to arrive early.

Ron of course, didn't believe that in the middle of the week it would be very busy, so we finally arrived around 11:30.

The line looks deceiving until you realize that once inside the tent the line snakes from front to back a couple of times so more people can be in under shelter in inclement weather.

I stayed with Ron until he was inside the tent and then I went to sit on the benches near the entrance to give my leg a rest.

A little over an hour later we were able to get into the building.

The wait was well worth it.

There was a large selection of art in watercolour, oils, mixed media and acrylic. Sculptures could be found made of clay, wood, wire and stone.

There was a variety of handmade Christmas decorations, jewellery, stained glass, quilts, as well as maple syrup, chocolates, and other edibles, just to name a few things.

If you haven't made it out to the Christmas at Presqu’ile show held at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, at 328 Presqu’ile Parkway, in Brighton, the last two days are 09-10 November 2019 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
