The 27th Annual Unionville
Olde Tyme Christmas
& Candlelight Parade


     The 2007 Candlelight Parade, held on Friday, December 7 on Main Street Unionville, was as always an enjoyable event for all ages and successfully kicked off a weekend of events in the 27th Olde Tyme Christmas in this historic town. 

      Few places can replicate an old-fashioned Christmas as realistically as Main Street Unionville.  Village charm, quaint architecture and small town courtesy are the hallmarks of the town’s most popular winter attraction.

      Friday evening's parade, highlighted by an appearance by jolly old Santa Claus himself, was only the beginning of a three day festival that included Victorian-style carolers, streetlamps, sleigh bells, and carriage rides . . . Christmas card scenes that came alive. 

      But Olde Tyme Christmas on Main Street Unionville did not end on Sunday.  The spirit continues throughout the holiday season with carriage rides and beautifully decorated streets, and, of course, a wide variety of shops catering to all your Christmas needs.
