….It's Christmas time in Halton Region
Mom's cooking turkey and not a small pigeon
Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees…

We know, it’s a bad take on Run DMC’s Christmas in Hollis, but we couldn’t resist. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Halton Region is FULL of things to do.

We thought we would take a break from our regular, extremely helpful storage tips and tricks, and give you a list of things to do, places to be and people to see in Halton for Winter 2019. We always struggle to narrow our list down, so if you don’t see something in our blog, please email us!

Christmas on the Rails, Halton County Radial Railway Museum: If you have an avid trainer in your house, you NEED to visit the Halton County Radial Railway Museum at 13629 Guelph Line. On December 7, 2019 the museum opens from 1pm-8pm (please remember it’s run entirely by volunteers so show some extra cheer). The trains are decorated and there’s Christmas carols playing. It’s really a nice outing. More details can be found at: https://hcry.org/event/christmas-on-the-rails/.

Christmas Town – Conservation Halton: This event runs at Mountsberg from November 13 to December 24, 2019. How do we put this? It’s a VERY popular destination. Mountsberg is transformed into, literally, a Christmas town, complete with Santa. There is a wagon ride through the winter woodlands, special Christmas crafts and a private meeting with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Kids love it and parents get into the spirit, so it’s win-win! More details can be found at: https://www.conservationhalton.ca/christmas-town

Campbellville Santa Claus Parade: Forget Toronto’s Santa Claus Parade. Campbellville has it all. This year, the parade is on December 15th, 2019 from 1:30pm-3:30pm on Main Street (Campbellville). The parade is well done and there are events afterwards at the local restaurants and churches.

Breakfast with Santa, Milton District Hospital Foundation: This is an annual event put on by the Milton District Hospital Foundation and this year it's on November 24, 2019. You purchase tickets in advance, and these tickets get you a lot of value – buffet of excellent food, silent auction, fun activities, live children’s entertainment and music, etc. It’s also for an amazing cause which will make you feel good about supporting it.

Tobogganing in Burlington: The City of Burlington has six areas that are safe (and FUN) for tobogganing. If it snows, you might as well enjoy it! Please remember to be safe. Tobogganing should not be done in the dark and everyone should wear a helmet. The six parks are:

  • LaSalle Park, east of the parking lot.
  • Tyandaga Park at hole number four on the west slope.
  • Central Park on the hill northwest of the community garden.
  • Brant Hills Park, southwest of the tennis courts.
  • Nelson Park on the east side of park, north of the Centennial bike path.
  • Lowville Park on the hill at the southwest end of park.

Halton Region, and especially our beloved Milton, have so much to see and offer. Get out there and enjoy the beautiful place we live in!

And don’t forget about us here at Storage Solutions. We love candy canes and Santa is visiting December 24 to pick up all the toys he has in storage.

Very reliable storage. A good solution to park your car and keeping it protected from all weather conditions. Although a bit remote location.. but the price and the service was worth it.

I went in to find out some information on storage units for when I move in a couple weeks and was happily surprised by the customer service I received. I had looked at a few other storage facilities in Woodstock but their customer service was terrible compared to Jared's from Storage Solutions. He was professional and understanding of my needs and was ready to help anywhere he could. I will definitely be spreading the word to any of my friends looking for units!

Great rates for a clean, secure, well lit place. Really good staff and a company that cares. New facility and the competitors are pretty tired looking and charging the same rates (if not a bit more).

My husband and I recently relocated from the US and needed a place to store all of our belongings while we secured a new home. The folks at Storage Solutions advised us on the right size unit for our needs, at the right price. They were kind and helpful with all of our "first-timer" questions. We were very confident in the security of the place, and had absolutely no issues. I would highly recommend and use them again if needed.

Been storing office and personal items for years. Have had various size units. Prices are great and staff has always been helpful.
