Rich in history and true-to-era buildings, Ontario’s Cumberland Heritage Village Museum will transform into a festive holiday destination, adorned with lights and festive activities that date back 100 years.
Vintage Village of Lights at Cumberland Heritage Village Museum kicks off from November 24th to December 17th. Experience the Christmas traditions of yesteryear in what is called a “postcard-perfect scenery” of a 1920s and 30s village.
The village will shine bright in stunning light displays and seasonal decorations. “Chat with the villagers and get an up-close look at carpentry, leatherwork, and blacksmith demonstrations,” shared organizers. “Join us for a song around the player piano then send a telegram to the North Pole. ”
