A Pretty Nice Little Town

Baie-D’Urfé is a pretty nice little town to spend time in. This evening the Citizens’ Association coordinated a switching on of the lights event focused on a gorgeous Winter Tree set up in the Fritz Park bandstand.

In the past week several of our neighbouring towns have had tree lighting events, but ours was better. Better by far, because the other towns lights seemed to be coordinated with local shopping opportunities and had a bit of a commercial flavour whereas our event was simply nice and friendly, no commercialization at all, just community families and kids (I’m an old sort of kid) having fun celebrating the start of the mid-winter festivals.

It was quite delightful … and then we took our chilled fingers home to find some whisky and feed the cat.
