Several families took advantage of the weather on Saturday afternoon to enjoy Christmas in the Country at Tiger Lily Farm.

A pony-drawn wagon took visitors to Santa’s cabin in the woods, while others created festive door swags.

The dress up bin was full of costumes borrowed from the Bethlehem Walk.  The re-created manger with the barnyard animals was a popular place for angels of all sizes.

The farm is open until Christmas eve. Hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Admission is $5 and covers all the activities and homemade cookies and hot drinks.

The farm is located at 1692 Errington Rd. For more information visit www.tigerlilyfarm.ca or call 250-248-2408.
