“Walking in a Winter Wonderland” Ellicottville’s Christmas wonderland begins on Friday, November 28th, 2014. The Village of Ellicottville, often referred to as a Norman Rockwell painting in the making, will be the background for beautiful strolling choirs harmonizing all the favorite Christmas carols while the smell of hot chocolate and the decorated windows in this historic 19th century Village bring back thoughts of a Christmas past. As daylight comes to an end a spectacle unlike any other will appear as the village of Ellicottville comes to life in white Christmas lights and the three story tall Village Christmas tree is lit. Throughout the Friday, Saturday and Sunday event, activities will include Christmas carolers, a live reindeer, breakfast with Santa, horse and wagon rides, interactive children’s activities as well as Fire Truck rides with Santa. A schedule will be posted here closer to the date of the event.
