christmas in Guelph

I am going to be in Guelph for Christmas visiting my daughter .As it is the first time I have spent Christmas in Canada I am really looking forward to a white Christmas ( we have not had a white Christmas in England for years) . Am I going to be lucky and get snow and if so will there be outdoor skating rinks and sleigh rides in or near to Guelph? or am I just dreaming .

A white Christmas is a possibility. However, even without snow, you can find rinks and sleigh rides.

For skating, if it's too warm for outdoor rinks, you can still skate indoors: guelph.ca/living.cfm…

Closer to Christmas, that guelph.ca will have outdoor rink info.

When I googled guelph sleigh rides, this was the closest: Mountsberg Conservation Area, Campbellville, ON L0P 1B0 (905) 854-2276

We had a huge snowfall yesterday and hopefully it will look as pretty when you arrive, as it does today in the sunshine. :)

Very near to Guelph are the lovely towns of Elora and Fergus that very likely will have holiday festivities like those you are interested in:

St. Jacobs is another great place to visit not far at all from Guelph. If you could rent a car for a day or two it would give you the freedom to see the countryside a little.
