Elf and Visiting the Homestead
By Cynthia Burk

Stoney Point - December 16, 2014 - Two very different things to do with the family. Head out to the Homestead in Essex for holiday traditions of an earlier time or laugh at a now holiday classic, Elf showing at the St. Clair College Capital Theatre in Chatham. Both are wonderful family outings so get out and enjoy.

Elf and Visiting the Homestead

Head to the Homestead -
On Wednesday, December 17th from 7 pm to 8:30 pm head out and enjoy an evening of festivity and mirth in this rare chance to see the Homestead decorations by candlelight. Learn about holiday traditions of an earlier time; join in a wassailing; taste seasonal treats and roast a chestnut by the open fire; listen to a reading of 'A Visit from St. Nicholas'; make a unique holiday ornament to take home.

Pre-registration is required.

Tickets: $15 per person. For more information, contact the Homestead: 519-738-2029, or email:

John B. Park Homestead Conservation Area, 915 Essex County Rd 50 E, Essex, ON

Elf -
On Wednesday, Dec 17th, at 6:30 pm grab the family and head downtown to watch Elf at the Capital Theatre: A human baby raised as an elf. A city where no one remembers the true meaning of Christmas. Will Ferrell (Saturday Night Live, Superstar) stars as Buddy, a human raised in the North Pole to be an elf. After wreaking havoc in the elf community due to his size, Buddy heads to New York City to find his place in the world, and track down his father. But life in the big city is not all sugarplums and candy canes. His father is a "Scrooge" and his eight-year-old stepbrother doesn't believe in Santa. Even the snowmen aren't friendly in New York. In fact, they don't even speak. Worst of all, everyone has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, and it's up to Buddy and his simple elf ways to win over his family, realize his destiny and, ultimately, save Christmas for New York and the world.
Box Office 1-866-807-7770

Ticket Price: $5 at the door, $10 for a family up to six; Concessions available including popcorn, candy & drinks.
