Moonlight Shopping Party and Street Festival

Stock up on holiday gifts and treats at this late-night shopping event and street festival. Sip on a hot chocolate while you stroll from shop to shop to enjoy the living holiday window displays, fireworks, children’s activities, and so much more. Don’t forget to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Fill-a-Cruiser toy drive.

Self-Guided Festivities

Bring your keen eye while you roam around Downtown Bracebridge in a game of Elf on the Shelf hide and seek! Elves will be located in select downtown businesses; spot them all for a chance to win one of three $50 gift cards. For more chances to win, take part in the Hot Cocoa Trail at participating downtown locations. Get your holiday shopping done and support local with late night shopping on Friday evenings until 8 p.m.
