Mark your calendars!Christmas1

The 2nd Annual Christmas at Ken Reid FREE Family event is scheduled for Saturday, December 7 from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Confirmed again for this year is the popular Horse Drawn Wagon Rides, Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue, Musical Performances, Christmas Scavenger Hunt, Kids Craft Corner, Santa Claus and more.

The Lindsay East and District Lions Club will be holding a BBQ throughout the event. Funds raised through the BBQ will go towards supporting Lions Club activities and Kawartha Conservation.

This is a FREE family event for the entire community.

Thanks to the wonderful support of the AVIVA Community Foundation in 2018, we were able to welcome hundreds of families, children and visitors to Ken Reid Conservation Area for the free event. From hot chocolate and coffee, to kids crafts, visits with Santa, sleigh rides and petting zoo, our goal was to create an event that every family, regardless of circumstance could attend and enjoy all free of charge.

The one-time $10,000 grant we received through the AVIVA Foundation allowed us to do that.

In order to make this year’s event a success we are reaching out to local businesses and organizations to help support this wonderful community event. We would love for you to be a part of this magical holiday event and have a number of sponsorship packages available.

If you, your business or organization would like to get involved, please contact Nancy Aspden at 705-328-2271 Ext. 218 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Great news!

New this year, we have a FREE shuttle, thanks to the City of Kawartha Lakes that will transport people from the Parking Lot behind Canadian Tire to Ken Reid Conservation Area.
