The #ExploreWRMistletoe Trail Returns for the Holidays!

Posted on Sun, Dec 1st, 2019 8:48 pm by Minto Schneider

It’s time for some holiday fun as you head out on the #ExploreWRMistletoe Trail!

The #ExploreWRMistletoe Trail features 7 Instagramable locations in Waterloo Region where the mistletoe has been hung and visitors are invited to stop by for a shareable moment – a hug, a kiss, and definitely a picture or selfie!

“Visitors and locals are looking for things to do now that the cold weather is here,” says Minto Schneider, CEO of Explore Waterloo Region. “The #ExploreWRMistletoeTrail is a fun way to encourage people to head outdoors and explore our region with their family and friends. Take a picture under the mistletoe, post it on social media, and share the fun while celebrating the season!”
