Gallery: Decoration Day in NOTL


Niagara-on-the-Lake residents, community partners and volunteers have come together Friday morning to help decorate the town for the upcoming festive season.

This year the town has an authentic Victorian Christmas village theme.

NOTL Horticultural Society has donated $5,000 to the Town of NOTL for Christmas decorations and for six live trees which were put up at the corner of Mississauga and Queen streets.

The trees will be kept in the greenhouse during winter and, once spring comes, the Town will decide what to do with the trees, said Horticultural Society’s past president Marla Percy.

Along Queen Street, lamp posts were decorated with lights and boroughs, and garlands were put up in front of several downtown businesses.

Members of the society also decorated the gazebo at Queen’s Royal Park.

Christmas Decoration Committee member Brenda McArthur and Bill Buchanan of Buchanan Expert Tree Care Inc. brought four pick-up trucks loaded with green decorations for the entire town.

“The town is going to look really beautiful and special this year,” McArthur told The Lake Report. “Everyone is volunteering their time to help get decorations up. The town will become more festive than normal thanks to (Lord Mayor) Betty Disero, the Chamber and so many volunteers.”
