Sipping and shopping late into the night

Late night sip and shop – The Fergus BIA Late Night Sip and Shop ran four nights, on Nov. 24 and 25 and Dec. 1 and 2. A tree lighting took place behind the Fergus library branch, there were horse-drawn wagon rides, carollers roved along St. Andrews Street (along with a troupe of goats and a pony) and even Santa Claus found time to make an appearance.
