Sea Cider Event: Wassail!
January 25, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm PST
You’re invited to our Wassail Celebrations, Sunday, January 25th, from 11am-4pm at Sea Cider!
Join Sea Cider for a day of fun-filled, family events at the Farm & Ciderhouse located at 2487 Mt. St. Michael Rd in Saanichton!
Wassailing is an ancient custom in which we bless the orchard and scare away all the evil spirits. Wassail celebrations involve singing and drinking to the health of trees in the hope that they will thrive. The word ‘wassail’ comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means ‘good health’.
We will be offering:
– Guided tours of the cidery and orchard
– Kids crafts & activities
– Prizes & giveaways
– Complimentary welcome glass of cider
– Cider for purchase
– Official orchard blessing
– Morris dancers
– Mummers play
– Sample delicious food from our catering partners
Stay up to date with all the happenings right here on our Facebook event page.
“Here’s to thee, old apple-tree,
Whence thou mayst bud, and whence thou mayst blow,
And whence thou mayst bear apples enow!
Bushel, bushel sacks-full!
And my pockets full, too! Huzza!”
Please RSVP on our Facebook Event.
Come raise a glass to good cider & good health! See you Sunday, January 25th!
