How Midtown celebrates neighbours, giving and buying local, all in one night

There was a LOT of activity in the neighbourhood last weekend. In addition to the snow – finally! – it was the weekend for holiday gatherings of neighbours and holiday sales hosted at three locations across the neighbourhood.

Little City Farm hosted the first outdoor version of their popular Little Bird Told Me eco craft sale. Enchanting! Like a miniature Christkindl market. With warm apple cider and people to talk to every ten steps, it was the perfect way to usher in winter & the festive holiday season.

A magical night to meet and connect with neighbours from near & far. The Little Bird Told Me holiday sale at Little City Farm is always a focal point and a highlight of the neighbourhood festive season.

Meanwhile, over at the neighbourhood Christmas party, it looked like a production line! Personal items, snacks, mittens and hats were packed into “stockings” decorated with well wishes and greetings to participants at St. John’s Kitchen. Seriously, don’t miss this next year!

The hydro poles around the neighbourhood are a great way to share event notices! This was the first year for the Enchanted Christmas Market at the KW Artist Co-op which was very successful!

Maybe this will become a new annual event… what do you think?
