Christmas in Cambridge Ontario is a family affair! They have so many activities for everyone of all ages and their individual love of the season.
My daughter and I have gone into a couple of their activities already. We participated in Candyland as well as rode the miniature train that the Cambridge Centre our local mall has going on right now.
Candyland is always something we do, and I’m excited as this year they have done away with the carousel (that I’m sad about) but they have replaced it with a skating rink! That is our plan for tonight, to go skating at Central Park in Preston. Winters here aren’t usually very nice to outdoor skating rinks, so I’m going to take advantage and do it now while I can!
Mackenzie had her face painted and met with Santa and Mrs Claus and talked to them. Explained to them how she lost her 1 tooth. She lost it at our annual Ugly sweater breakfast that morning. We enjoyed the games and the mazes as well as the must have pictures of her as ice cream/ candy ect. It is a sight to be seen! They decorate the trees and the grounds with “candy” . Local schools show off their gingerbread houses and there are lots of people offering hot chocolate and food and other great treats!
I’m going to note that Mackenzie also lost another tooth that day. She lost her 2 top front teeth. The other was lost right after we left Candyland. She’s really wanting her front teeth for Christmas!
Monday night, we went off to the Cambridge Centre to check out the miniature train. It is new this year and only running from Dec 3—9th. They have more information on their website or Facebook page but there really isn’t much you need to know is that it is free and very fun! They start off at the new Target location (Old Zellers inside doors) and drive us through the whole mall. It was a great way to window shop. The whole ride lasted about 10-15 minutes and we got to wave and say hi to Santa on our way!
I’m heading to Toronto later this week to check out the Strombo show and shop a bit downtown. The next few weeks will be busy!
