Winter Festivals In New Brunswick
We are keeping our goal for Winter Festivals this year to 2, only because the weather and road conditions may limit the travel we can do. We compiled a long list with details as we were researching our plans, so we are sharing here for your enjoyment and planning. We also shared our Winter Family Bucket List to help share more ideas for winter, family-friendly activities in New Brunswick.
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.
Hey everyone! Have you ever stopped to look at what there is around you when planning a night or weekend away? We have started a new blog series called “#StopToSeeNB – Visiting Hometowns In New Brunswick”, to share some of the reasons we love New Brunswick, why we are proud to be from here, and in order to instill a sense of belonging in our children. We are a family of 4, Ruth Ann (me), Doug (my husband), Lorne (16 yrs) and Clayton (6 yrs), and traveling most of the time with our dog Bo. We will highlight the things we saw, where we ate and where we stayed in each place we visit.
Taking time to connect as a family is something I really did not realize we needed, at least not until we did it.
Have you ever attended the Moncton Highland Games? We did this year, and will be back again next year for their 13th year!
When it comes to family travel, I truly believe in exploring where we are from. We love day trips, weekend adventures and to explore Atlantic Canada. We are sharing mainly our weekend wanderings, day trips within 2-3 hours of Moncton, NB (where we are from), and some longer adventures we have had in Atlantic Canada. … Read more
In April, Doug, Clayton and I spent a night in Halifax and used our time exploring downtown. We have been to Halifax many times as a family, staying in Dartmouth, Bedford and Bayer’s Lake areas. This trip we stayed at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront.
As part of our Halifax weekend getaway in April, we visited the Discovery Centre for the first time in it’s new location. WOW!!
