Now that we’ve had some snow, you can definitely tell the holiday season is coming up, and Moonlight Magic is an excellent way to bring your holiday cheer.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Friday with face painting and caricatures being drawn inside of Town Hall. These will both be free of charge, so your whole family can get your faces drawn or painted onto.

There will also be entertainment in the streets for everyone to watch, and free horse drawn carriage rides around the downtown area.

During the event, stores will also be open for everyone to browse and buy. Alison Scheel, the general manager of the BIA, says this is “the purpose of the whole event, to get people out and see what’s in Downtown Orangeville.”

An hour after the activities start, the tree lighting will take place outside Town Hall, where everyone will gather to see this age-old tradition. For many years now, the people of Orangeville have had a chance to see it light up and have a wonderful experience.

Santa will be making a guest appearance after he sees the tree is lit, and everyone will be able to go say ‘hi’ to him. Then at 8 p.m. the Tractor Parade of Lights will start at Broadway and Third Street.

The parade has been an event held in Orangeville for many years, and hopefully many years to come. With all of the beautiful lights, everything feels lit up in Orangeville.

In past years they have had up to 8, 000 people come to this event, and are hoping for that many, or more, this year. “It’s wonderful to see everyone coming to this, depending on the weather of course,” Alison said.

Come out and enjoy all of these activities with the people of Orangeville, and support what is going on in your community.
