Blog Guelph: Dogs [blank] Christmas

Dogs Hate Christmas, originally uploaded by TheGiantVermin.

Christmas is about to arrive in Guelph - Jingle Bells and all that smells to you! Yark!

Here's a slice of the media release I got from Missy Downtown Lynn this week.

Downtown Guelph businesses are pleased to host the 17th Annual Winter Lights & Music in St. George’s Square on Friday, November 19.

Come see an ice sculpture take shape in the late afternoon, jump on a Horse and Trolley on Douglas Street, and visit Santa and his reindeer in Old Quebec Street.

Between 6 and 7 pm, our stage in the Square will be alive with the choral sounds of the well-loved local choir, Coro Cantitalia. We’ll also be joined on stage by the Salvation Army Band and a special choir composed of students from St. Paul’s and St. Michael’s.

At 7pm, Mayor Farbridge joins us to lead a countdown to light the Christmas Tree.

THE GREAT WOODEN TRIO, a group who is a unique combination of song, story and music, plays immediately following the Tree Lighting, and Ian Reid will close the evening.

The DGBA will also host a FREE Family skate at the Sleeman Centre on Saturday, November 20 between 2:30 and 4:30 pm.

Don’t miss the Santa Claus Parade, hosted by the Kinette Club of Guelph, running this year from London Road to Woolwich Street, along Norfolk Street, then turning onto Macdonell, ending again at Woolwich Street.

Well there you have it folks - Ho ho yourselves all Merry.
