The Elora Mews courtyard on Mill St. West in the village of Elora's heritage district was a popular place on the Thanksgiving weekend. It was perfect weather for walks along the Elora Gorge and strolling along Elora's streets, exploring the shops and galleries, and eating ice cream at the outdoor patio in the Mews.
It was the last few days of the Sensational Elora Festival, with many events and activities celebrating Elora's scenic attractions, historic streetscapes and architecture, local art, film, and food. And every October is Monster Month in Elora, with creative ghostly figures inspired by artist Tim Murton on view until Hallowe'en.
In November and December, the shops in Elora are a popular shopping destination for unique Christmas gifts. Especially on "Starlight Shopping nights" (Nov. 24 & 25 in 2011) when shops welcome shoppers with relaxing shopping evenings with some special Christmas cheer.
