Christmas Lights of Greater Moncton

UPDATED 2020 EDITION!
With Christmas right around the corner, houses are being decorated inside and out. Some people have a few strands of lights, while others go all out. 

With lockdowns, no parade, limited access to activities, etc, we hope to make 2020’s list and map a favourite resource for families in Greater Moncton.

We have compiled a list of all the bigger or unique (one of a kind) light displays in the Greater Moncton region. The list was compiled on our Facebook page in 2018 & 2019, and we will continue to update and add to it here on the blog.

This past weekend we celebrated Clayton’s birthday with his friends. He turned 6 back on December 30th, but this year he asked for a party with some of his friends. So, when planning what to do, where to go and what to eat, I went with the ease of a hosted party, at a fun location and we ordered our food ahead of time from Greco Pizza.

Weekend Wanderings – Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest

This post is sponsored by Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest.* 

Our Weekend Wanderings took us to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in late February. We packed up the car with our family of 4 and were on the road to the Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest. Only a few hours from Moncton, this was the perfect weekend adventure. For this particular adventure, we left Moncton around noon on Friday and arrived back home Sunday at suppertime. Our VIP Package included hotel stay for 2 nights, welcome bag for the kids upon arrival, snacks each night (if you are at the hotel at the time), breakfast with various kids show characters and early access to the sites each day.

Start by putting the phones away, out of sight, … Read more
