Wow – Christmas came fast this year! It’s only two days after the kids begin their Christmas break…that leaves 14 days straight before they go back to school. Some parents love that, some parents put the kids in care, some parents are at a loss of things to do.
Here are a few things going on around North Grenville over the holidays
Who cares if it is cold! Get outside…plus it’s a good reason to go for a hot chocolate afterwards.

Mudpuppies! Huh? Yup – who knew? Not me!
“This is the opportunity to see our giant aquatic Salamanders at the only place in Ontario where they’re known to be easily viewed during their winter activity. We assemble on the County Road 18 bridge below the dam, and walk around the shore or ice shelves, seeing up to 180 Mudpuppies prowling the bottom. Afterwards we retire to the Brigadoon Restaurant, to drink coffee, eat desserts, and talk about Mudpuppies and everything else!”
What a cool thing to do right here in North Grenville!
