Zurich - Poinsettia Festival
Huron Ridge Acres near Zurich will be holding its annual Poinsettia Festival in November. Last fall, Huron Ridge completed an exciting expansion project and created a new checkout area, a new exit and entrance,and reconfigured gates and parking lot.
The new space is bright and cheerful, and most importantly, can accommodate more people and help with physical distancing during the popular open houses, as COVID-19 restrictions continue.
The open houses have become a family tradition for many to enjoy the thousands of poinsettias set under hundreds of twinkling lights and dozens of candles with a background of Christmas music, which is sometimes performed live. Hours and weeks of planning and preparation go into creating the festive shopping experience.
With one of the largest selections of poinsettia varieties in the region, Huron Ridge has become a Christmas destination. You can find poinsettias here to fit into almost any decorative scheme. They range from creamy white to pink to the traditional bright red. Some varieties have bracts with patterns in red and white, pink and white, or green and white and even unique ones in white and soft purple.
Don’t forget to choose a Christmas wrap for the pot, and decide whether you want glitter spray added.
Between its retail sales and fundraising sales of groups and schools, Huron Ridge Acres will sell around 12,000 poinsettias of more than 20 different varieties, and the poinsettias will travel as far as Tobermory in the north to Kingsville in the south.
Huron Ridge Acres will be open Wednesdays to Saturdays, from Nov. 17-20, Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 1-4. For more information, visit www.huronridge.ca or find them on Facebook.
