The annual Ball’s Falls Thanksgiving Festival is forging ahead in its 46th year with a hybrid approach of virtual and in-person options.
New this year is an online-only shopping experience featuring more than 80 vendors selling everything from woodworks to food.
Once shoppers have had their fill, orders can be picked up at the Ball’s Falls Conservation Area during the Thanksgiving weekend. Delivery for a fee, is also available to Niagara residents.
For those wanting to get away from the screen, there are tours of the Heritage Village of Glen Elgin available over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Transporting guests back over two centuries ago, there will be demonstrations of blacksmithing, weaving, a grist mill and tours of heritage buildings.
The online shopping experience opens on Sept. 12 and runs until Oct. 7.
Reservations for the Heritage Village of Glen Elgin experience can be booked online now, for up to 10 people, and are available until spots fill up, with 16 tours happening each day between Oct. 9 and Oct. 12.
