An Ontario Village Has Transformed Into A Twinkling North Pole This Winter

It’s time to hop into your horse-drawn carriage and take a trip to the North Pole. St. Jacobs Village has transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland for you to explore this holiday season.

Every year, the quaint Ontario spot glows in tons of twinkling lights that transform the town into a magical elf village. This year, the town has announced that they have added even more lights than before.

As you wander through the glowing streets, you can head inside multiple shops that offer hand-made goods and local treats.

Some spots will even be open late on Thursday and Fridays from November 12th until Christmas Eve so you can get all your holiday shopping done.

Previous years have seen carolers and horse-drawn carriages wander down the streets to spread some extra Christmas joy.

While guests can also usually visit Santa, the Village has announced that due to restrictions, he had to travel back to the real North Pole this year.

However, you can still take in many of the other festive sights.

It is important to note that things will look a little bit different this year due to new COVID-19 restrictions.

St. Jacobs Village is asking all guests to ensure that they are maintaining the 6 feet of social distance and that masks are worn while entering shops.

Once you have shopped until you dropped, there are multiple restaurants that you can check out before you head home.

If you’re feeling festive, the Village Biergarten will even let you enjoy a meal inside of a glowing igloo this winter season.

Throughout the winter they will be serving authentic Mexican cuisine, along with local craft beer, wine, cider and spirits. You might want to book in advance if you plan on visiting this eatery, as spots can fill up fast.
