There’s Plenty of Holiday Cheer to Go Around in the Market District Neighbourhood!

Posted on Dec. 13, 2016 by Market District Towns

It’s that time of year again, and there’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to get out into the community and enjoy some seasonal events with friends, family and neighbours. With a number of exiting events to discover all month long, you can create some truly wonderful holiday memories this year in Durham County.

Every Day Until Christmas Eve
Cut Your Own Christmas Tree
There’s perhaps no better holiday event than heading out with the whole family to pick the perfect Christmas tree, then cut it down yourself. If this sounds good to you, Durham Region offers two convenient Christmas tree farms to choose from. Located at 545 Regional Rd.21 in Port Perry, On. Spademan’s Tree Farm has been a favourite for families for over 35 years. Also nearby at 4060 Mountjoy Road in Blackstock, Blackstock Christmas tree farm not only lets you cut down your own tree, but also sells some beautiful decorations and offers free hot chocolate or cider to all farm visitors.
