As we head into mid May, it's pretty clear what's ahead: BBQ's, flip flops, and sun-filled long weekends, the first of which is my favourite. You don't have to head up north with your camping gear to enjoy it. There is so much to do right here in Oakville! Here are my 7 favourite local events:
#1 Spring Time On The Farm at Bronte Creek Provincial Park. This event runs from 12:00pm until 4:00pm on Victoria Day, Monday May 22nd. Think picnics, hiking, games, historical demonstrations and Playbarn. Head over to Visit Oakville to learn more.
#2 Get Planting with greens you pick up at the annual Bronte Village Mall's yearly plant sale hosted by the Bronte Horticultural Society. At the corner of Lakeshore and Jones from 8:30am until 1:30pm on Saturday May 20th.
#3 Tea Time at Bronte Creek Provincial Park is where you'll learn how to property make a cup of tea. Running daily from 11:00am until 3:00pm from Saturday May 20th through Monday May 22nd. Head over to Burlington.ca to learn more and add a spot of tea to your iCalendar.
