WINTERFEST CANDLELIT WINTER WALK – MAITLAND WOODS 3/4 – 1 hourThe Maitland Trail Association organizes this annual event as part of the Town of Goderich’s Winter Festival, and it is always a magical adventure. Participants can set out from the trail entrance at the east end of the Knights of Columbus Hall parking lot (Parson’s Court) anytime between 7:30 and 9:00 pm. A one kilometre portion of the trail in the Maitland Woods will be transformed by the flickering beauty of candlelight. After the walk, come in to enjoy a cup of hot cider or cocoa and a cookie (coin donation). Call Con Melady at 524-8730 if willing to help light the trail or assist with serving refreshments. Everyone who has their own candle lanterns (home-made or bought) is encouraged to bring them and set them out somewhere along the trail, to add to the magic of the experience. Come and find out for yourself why people are eager to take part year after year after year! Level 1.
