Some of the highlights in the Market Square include the Real Reindeer, the Splashpals Newfoundland dogs with their Christmas Carriages and Santa in his Grotto.  Enjoy non-stop entertainment from 12:30pm on the main stage and Christmas Workshops and Crafts in the former Claire’s Accessories store on Biggin Street from 10:00am to 3:30pm. There will be a climbing wall and smaller boulder wall for the little ones by the Prince Albert Public House from 10am.
