Ignite the Fort will feature exciting, family-friendly activities including wagon rides, toy and candle making, cookie decorating, candy making and traditional fudge, and artisan demonstrations such as tincicle and mukuk (birch bark basket) making. There will also be fun contests to win great prizes including gingerbread house making and fur pack toboggan pull, and visitors can dress up as a historic character to “Capture the Past” with a heritage-style holiday photo opportunity. Special guest, Santa Claus, will also make an appearance at Ignite the Fort.
Ignite the Fort will also feature a great opportunity to support the community. For $1.00 you will be able to purchase a bulb for the giant holiday tree, with proceeds being donated to the United Way of Thunder Bay. At 5:30pm we’ll “Ignite the Fort” with a brilliant tree lighting ceremony and carolling in the Main Square.
The festivities continue immediately following Ignite the Fort with the Star of Bethlehem event at the David Thompson Astronomical Observatory.
