It seems like it’s been a long couple of weeks since the last three-day weekend, doesn’t it? Between back to school nuttiness, bosses coming back from vacation and the inevitable return to a faster pace, it doesn’t feel like we’ve had a minute to breathe!
So it’s perfect timing for a family- and food-filled long weekend with lots of down time. Personally, I love getting out in the community over Thanksgiving, because, frankly, there’s just so much to do! The Kawarthas are just beautiful in the fall, and with harvest season in full swing, there is no end to the festivals and activities one can get up to.
Whether you’re hosting at home and need an excuse to get out of the house, or you’re staying at Viamede and want to explore, here is my round-up of the BEST things to do in the Kawarthas this weekend:
Walk the Line – Johnny Cash Tribute, October 5, Cameco Capitol Arts Centre, Port Hope
