The City has arranged decorative lighting in Lamoureux Park, a series of events and will keep the recreational path cleared throughout the winter to encourage festivities.

Your Cornwall Community Museum is a proud sponsor of the decorative twinkle lights in the park.

This evening revelers enjoyed free horse-drawn sleigh rides in the park, toboggan slides and show shoeing as well as large-screen TV Cogeco videos depicting Cornwall history and cuddling by an open fire. Even the play structures are decorated. Refreshments were available at Mocktails.
