While difficult, with all the restrictions in place during a pandemic, the Collingwood Downtown BIA did an amazing job of enhancing the downtown and spreading Christmas cheer throughout the core of the community. Starting the evening of December 4th, the streets were lit up with amazing light installations complete with the beautiful town Christmas tree at the Federal Building. Guests were entertained by strolling hula hoopers, stilt walkers and jugglers, and other festive favourites. The Fleetwood Dancentre Dancers performed in windows of some local businesses. Although a Santa Claus parade was not possible this year, much to the delight of kids of all ages, Santa did make appearances, and physically distanced photo opportunities were welcomed.
