With snowflakes falling from the sky and Christmas music blasting on every radio station, it's a good sign that the holiday season is here! Another good indicator is that Laval's Christmas village, the Marché de Noël de Laval, is on its way back, after a pandemic break, in a magical setting.

The event, which is being held at Laval's Centre de la nature, will begin on the first Friday of December and will run for two weekends only, on the weekends of December 3 to 5 and December 10 to 12, 2021.

You'll be able to hit this holiday market on Fridays and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This village of little houses, where you can walk around with a hot drink between your mittens, will bring together more than 60 artisans to discover.

Decorative items, body care, gourmet pleasures, jewelry and more will be on sale by local businesses. You can take advantage of this opportunity to stock up on gifts for your family and discover new local artists and businesses.

If you want to light up and decorate your living room for the holidays, you can visit the selection of natural trees for sale. There's nothing like the fresh smell of pine to warm your heart and make you want to binge-watch a ton of Christmas movies.

Food booths will also be present so you can fill up on snacks while shopping. Vaccine passports and face coverings are not required for the outdoor portions of this activity. They are mandatory, however, in the Heat Zone tent.
