Another great summer weekend to have fun and make memories is upon us! See kids friendly events in the area:

Sundridge Sunflower Festival 2018 
The Sundridge Sunflower Festival is the largest annual summer festival in the Almaguin area. Located downtown in beautiful Sunny Sundridge, Ontario this festival features live music, family activities, great food and a street market with over 100 vendors. With new activities and events added every year this year’s festival will be better than the last. Last year (2017) was a very successful year with an estimated attendance of approx. 5,000 people. That means more than 5 times the population of Sundridge came out to enjoy the Sunflower Festival! We hope that we can continue this success in 2018. The 2018 Sundridge Sunflower Festival will be held the weekend of August 11th, 2018. Come out and bloom with us.

Hiking Laurier Woods - Youth Outdoors Hike
Come join in on a great Saturday hike in the beautiful outdoors. We will be meeting at Laurier Woods Conservation Area to begin the hike at 10am. We will be on the lookout for all kinds of animals and birds while enjoying the fresh air and natural environment.
Did you know that being outdoors has proven to enhance focus, boost energy, and improve one's relationships? One study even showed a strong correlation between youth being outdoors and increased academic performance.
Please bring the following so you are comfortable and prepared: water bottle, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent.
Note: We are meeting at the Brule St. access point and not the Laurier Ave. access point.
This event is totally free and for all aged 13-19. Extra water and some snacks will be provided.
