Holiday fun continues at Merridale Cider Jan. 1 to Jan. 3

From Thursday, Jan. 1 to Saturday, Jan. 3 from 4:30 – 9 p.m. families can still enjoy a fun day out walking in the orchard at Merridale Cider at 1230 Merridale Rd. in Cobble Hill.

Candy Cane Lane and the courtyard are lit up Friday to Sunday night, too.

"Imagine twinkling lights on the trees, perhaps a dusting of snow on the orchard floor, and a cup of our newly released mulled cider, Yule Fuel, to warm the soul," described Merridale owner Janet Docherty.

"Our walk will start at Santa’s workshop, and finish at the Elf’s Work Shop, otherwise known as the faery mining village. Along the lit path, you will encounter other familiar favourites such as Frosty and Rudolph. Bring your mitts and boots to keep warm, and begin the journey at the ciderhouse. Here, we will provide you with a map and some goodies to take on your walk," she said.
