The countdown to Christmas is on and boy, do we deserve a great holiday, filled with fun and wonderful experiences. We're so happy to see so many places that have pivoted this season to ensure families are able to spend quality time together and make some wonderful memories.

Our friends from Saunders Farm have introduced two holiday experiences and one Macaroni Kid winner will get to enjoy the experience of their choosing; either the Evening Light & Sound Show or the Daytime Country Christmas.

To enter you must be a Macaroni Kid subscriber. Tickets are non transferable or exchangeable. The winner will be able to request four daytime passes to A Country Christmas or one night time ticket for one vehicle to the Light & Sound Show. To enter, email me ( with Saunders Farm Day or Saunders Farm Night in the subject line. The winner will be contacted via email next week and announced in next week's newsletter. Good luck.

Light & Sound Show (Nightly Drive Thru)

With more than 30 years designing some of Ottawa’s most amazing experiences, the Saunders Farm team spent this past summer producing a brand new attraction, the Holiday Light & Sound Drive-Through Show! 

Load up your family and take a whimsical 2km drive through the beautiful, 180-year-old family Farm and magical forest. Join Mazey, the young sapling host as she explores the Farm in search of her own Christmas star.

After the Light & Sound Drive-Through Show drive through, you're invited you to visit the Night patio and Farm Shop where you can enjoy mulled wine, Craft beers, hot drinks, seasonal treats and Beavertails for purchase by a bonfire. They also have Christmas trees and wreaths and unique gifts in the Saunders Farm Shop.
