London Heritage Farm is getting into the Christmas spirit this year with a light display it hopes will draw people to its tea room and gift shop.

Thanks to fundraising work last year, money was raised to purchase Christmas lights that now adorn the heritage site that sits on the waterfront.

“Although we may never rival VanDusen Gardens for their light display, but we’d like to become the VanDusen of Richmond,” said Egon Frank, director and vice president of the London Heritage Farm Society.

While he’s hoping more people will check out the lights as part of a city tour of Christmas displays, Frank said people should also be drawn by the home-baked scones and sweets, which is served with London Lady tea.

“And our gift shop features many unique and hand-crafted items and home-made jams for gift giving,” Frank said.

London Heritage Farm, located at 6511 Dyke Rd., between No. 2 Road and Gilbert,  is open Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This upcoming weekend will also feature Christmas carolers and piano players playing Christmas tunes.
