Held from 1-6 p.m. at Fort William Historical Park in Thunder Bay, Ignite the Fort is a fun, family event celebrating the holiday season. Activities include scenic wagon rides, holiday crafts, historical re-enactments, Indigenous artisan demonstrations, a scavenger hunt, cookie decorating, storytelling, various contests, bannock, fudge and candy making, and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to decorate the giant holiday tree; for $1 you can purchase a bulb for the tree. Then, watch the Ignite the Fort tree lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. Following the ceremony is the Star of Bethlehem event from 7-9 p.m. at the David Thompson Astronomical Observatory. Learn about the many theories on the creation of this bright star and explore the night sky for other celestial wonders. Admission required for both events.
