Almost 6,400 visitors to historic Sherbrooke Village, in Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore, participated in the 2005 Old Fashioned Christmas, with activities taking place over one weekend, November 25th to November 27th.

"Opening night was attended by more than 3,300 people and a number of our musical and craft-related events exceeded our expectations," said Craig MacDonald, chair of the Old Fashioned Christmas Committee.

Next year will mark the 11th anniversary of Old Fashioned Christmas. Opening night activities are scheduled for Friday, November 24, 2006.

Old  Sherbrooke Village is a typical Nova Scotian village highlighting the period from 1860 to pre-World War I. It is the largest such site in Nova Scotia, with more than 80 buildings, over 25 of them open to the public.
Located in the eastern part of the province, it was built on an economy of ship building, lumbering, and gold mining.
