Every winter, our streets transform. The familiar and fresh sights of autumn days are exchanged with twinkling lights, natural greens, and a little bit of holiday magic. Bronte Village is no exception. With their iconic Christmas tree and jolly decorations, this little lakeside village in south-west Oakville transforms into an enchanting winter wonderland.
In addition to Bronte’s beautiful windows and classic decorations, the Business Improvement Area has something special up their sleeves this year with hopes to encourage local shopping – because #whereyoushopmatters.
Bronte will feature a number of Instagram-worthy selfie spots on Lakeshore Road just east of Jones Street, including a 20ft. by 8ft. festive backdrop providing a place for visitors to take photos, but more importantly, it will provide a space to write Christmas wishes: wishes for peace, and wishes for family. Visit Bronte’s magical Hallmark card-setting at the Gazebo and Christmas tree in Bronte Heritage Park, a place to meet for warm hugs, a smooch or two and who knows, maybe even a Christmas proposal.
This holiday season, experience the magic of beautiful Bronte. Spend the day perusing local shops and discover award-winning restaurants. Bronte is so much more than its waterfront and charm – it’s the people behind the small businesses. They are the heart that helps you source the perfect gift as unique as the person on your list.
Supporting local shops not only supports the local economy, it supports the community, and every time you purchase something from a small independent business owner, a real person does a happy dance.
