Annual event at Morningstar Farm in Parksville draws enthusiastic crowd

The carol wagons were full as they made their way to Morningstar Farm for its annual Christmas on the Farm event on Saturday, Dec. 16.

Many families, some who make the event a family tradition by coming every year, and others checking it out for the first time, boarded the wagons at Morningstar Golf Club and sang their way down to the farm, where crafts, a warm fire, live music and many barnyard animals (most eager for a visit) awaited them.

A highlight for some was a very young calf, which had been born that day at around noon, according to a woman who said she saw the birth.
