We encourage everyone to decorate their yards! There will be judging by the RCMP for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place from December 7th – 14th. Please ensure your lights are on in the evenings! Winners will be announced on the Town’s Facebook page on December 15th.

Credit cards are now accepted. All fees are paid by the cardholder. Payments may take 3-5 business days to process. The Town of Balgonie is avoiding passing on the cost of card payments to all residents, so those wishing to pay by credit card or debit card will be charged a fee. This fee is charged by Plastiq, not the Town of Balgonie. (2.85% for credit cards, 1% for debit cards).
