Two festive events are planned to spread Christmas cheer at Surrey Street’s Sunday market this month.
Little Canada is to return to the market on Sunday 10 December, with their Quebec Winter Carnival. The event celebrates 123 years of the annual carnival and will see a range of market traders and activities bring a taste of a Canadian Christmas to Croydon. Among the offerings will be handmade Christmas ornaments and hand crafted Canadian themed trinkets, hot waffles smothered in maple syrup and fresh cream, Canadian beers, cocktails and wine and brandy, as well as hot chocolate, butter tarts and pecan pie. Visitors will be able to have their picture taken with the famous Bonhomme de Neige who has been the official mascot of the carnival since 1955, while also enjoying face painting and live music, including a performance from a gospel choir. The event will take place between noon and 7pm.
