Kintail Country Christmas Set for Saturday

Spirit of Christmas Comes Alive at the Mill of Kintail

December 7, 2015, Almonte— The Mill of Kintail Conservation Area will be merry and bright on Saturday, December 12, 2015, with the return of the highly anticipated Kintail Country Christmas.

With new, extended hours from 10am-4pm, spend more time enjoying family favourites such as wagon rides, a nature scavenger hunt, crafts, stories by the fire and pictures with Father Christmas where you can take home a free photograph. Back by popular demand is the children-only gift shop and live music by Ken Ramsden.

“It’s always a thrill to see the Mill transformed into a magical place and watch families enjoy this storied tradition, whether it’s for the first time, or the ninth,” said Stephanie Kolsters, Mill of Kintail Supervisor.  “We encourage visitors to make the day what they want it to be and create their own memories of Kintail Country Christmas.”

The success of the event would not be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers from the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists, Ramsay Women’s Institute, North Lanark Regional Museum and Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, as well as Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) staff, family and friends who contribute to make this day special every year.

Admission is $15 per vehicle. For more information visit www.mvc.on.ca or like the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area on Facebook. The Mill of Kintail Conservation Area is located at 2854 Concession 8, Almonte.

MVCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Formed in 1968, MVCA’s mandate is to manage the watershed’s resources in partnership with our eleven member municipalities and the Province of Ontario. For more information, visit www.mvc.on.ca, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
