“This year everything worked to our advantage; we had a great family experience with exciting new elements such as the addition of our new Carousel Corner, combined with some of the best December weather – it was a win-win for everyone. Upper Canada Village is proud to be a part of so many families’ holiday traditions.” said Tracey Ogilby, Manager of Upper Canada Village.
