Looking forward to sipping hot cocoa and going on holiday excursions with the family? The annual PNE Winter Fair is back with 12 nights of Christmas-themed concerts and theatrical shows, indoor skating, and winter light displays. And of course, enough mini donuts and holiday treats to go around!

Guests can embark on a journey to meet Santa by solving puzzles and riddles, as well as ride the all-new PNE Holiday Express, which takes passengers on a magical ride through mesmerizing light tunnels that mimic the Northern Lights.

And if you’d rather get behind the wheel yourself, there’s Ice Bumper Cars ($7 per person) at the Tim Hortons Ice Rink you can take for a spin.

The fair will also feature a winter market, bringing together the best local vendors and gift options for those who want to do a bit of holiday shopping as they sip their hot apple cider or mulled wine.

Once you’ve done a bit of perusing, you can enjoy a magical journey through Hastings Park, which will be filled with twinkling lights and lavish holiday displays – including Candy Cane Lane and “Sparkle in the Night.” Here, visitors can watch as the winter lights come alive with synchronized music.

Finally, fair visitors can enjoy live programming like “Nutcracker on Ice” and the “Magic of Santa” – a holiday musical.
