Christmas in Port Colborne

Remember Christmas?

Remember when Christmas was a time of wonder? When you braved the cold between the shops with an armload of "perfect gifts"? Bumping into folks you hadn't seen forever.... being good, for goodness sake? The City of Port Colborne wishes to invite you 'round for Christmas this year, because as much as Christmas has changed in other places, things are much the same here as they were back in the good old days....

Christmas in Port Colborne

 We look forward to having you join us
for the 2018 Christmas Season!

 

 

 
 

Tugboat Santa

On Saturday, December 1st, join the Downtown BIA as they welcome Santa to Port Colborne.  He will arrive by tugboat at approximately 1 p.m. near West Street and Charlotte Street.  Santa will make his way down Charlotte Street to the Guild Hall where there will be free arts and crafts, free hot chocolate and cookies and the chance to have your picture taken with Santa (for a small fee). Great fun for the whole family that winds up around 3 p.m.

Santa arrives by Tugboat
