All ages welcome at annual Winterlight event
November 15, 2019 -
Celebrate the change in seasons with the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum at Winterlight, our 8th annual celebration of nature at the museum. The event takes place Saturday, Nov. 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Create winter-themed crafts, taste homemade kettle corn while singing around our campfire, and learn about different birds with an outdoor nature walk.
"Back by popular demand, our magical forest will be set up for children to create handmade wrapped gifts to give to loved ones for the holidays," says Keely Maddock, Program Coordinator with the City of Kingston. "We can't tell you what the gift will be, but can guarantee your children will enjoy making it and giving it too!"
There will be craft stations set up throughout the museum to help you get ready for the season by making environmentally friendly decorations. Guests of all ages can stretch their legs, minds and vocal cords at activity stations. Go for a nature walk in our arboretum, learn how to identify birds with the Kingston Field Naturalists, or sing along with local musicians next to our campfire!
You can learn more about the site and prepare for your visit to Winterlight.
Admission is $5 per person or one unwrapped toy per family in lieu of admission. Pre-registration is strongly recommended and can be done online.
The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum is located on the St. Lawrence River at Grass Creek Park, 2993 Highway 2 East, 613-542-0543, email@example.com or visit woodworkingmuseum.ca
