THORNBURYS 35TH ANNUAL OLDE
FASHIONED CHRISTMAS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2011
Olde Fashioned Christmas started 35
years ago as a way for local merchants to say thank you to
our customers - and so the tradition of going from store to
store and meeting your neighbours continues.
We invite you and your family to spend
the day with us at the annual Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration.
We have spiced up the traditional Hidden Santa hunt with wonderful
prize baskets, full of donations from your local merchants.
Three of the correct entries will be drawn for the Grand Prizes
on stage at 9 pm.
Christmas is a time for fellowship,
joy and goodwill among all. Seasons Greetings!

Apple Tastings Offered Throughout
The Blue Mountains in October!
Beginning September 30th and running for four consecutive
weekends, local producers and businesses are partnering with
the Town to provide complimentary apples for tasting at participating
businesses in The Blue Mountains.
A different variety of apple will be featured every weekend,
at local participating businesses. On-hand will also be tried
and tested apple-based recipes, a list of local apple markets
and stands where people can purchase apples to take home,
information about the Georgian Bay Fruit Growers Association
and of course the Apple Pie Trail.
This initiative is designed to continue to highlight the important
role of the agricultural community and small business in our
area and profile the incredible produce available here in
The Blue Mountains.
