Can you feel that weekend vibe – it’s almost here! To help you get in that carefree weekend mode, we’ve compiled a list of the fun events happening throughout our communities. Happy weekend, happy community exploring, and have fun!
For fans of antique hunting, head to St. James Anglican Church this Saturday from 10am – 3pm for their Tea and Treasures event. Purchase high-quality china, crystal, silver, pottery, jewellery and evening wear, and shop a selection of vintage and gently used items for sale. Enjoy a cup of tea and sweets while browsing beautiful and distinctive home decor items and Mother’s Day gifts. *Mother Day gift idea: Buy a china teacup and saucer and use it as a planter for a succulent, or glue the two together with the teacup on its side and use it as a bird feeder for a whimsical backyard garden decoration.
High Park in Toronto has nothing on the Royal Botanical Garden this season! Head to your favourite RBG spot and catch a glimpse of the flowering cherries that grace the gardens with white or pink flowered blooms. These trees, while at peak bloom, look like clouds of pink and white and are one of the most welcome signs that spring has finally sprung! Even better, visit on Mother’s Day, and enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants.
James Street Art Crawl is where it’s at this Friday night. Experience the city’s burgeoning art, music, and food scenes, while shopping local, people watching and taking in some city sights all while visiting galleries, studios, and stores. Don’t forget to grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.
If you missed Hamilton’s soccer team’s big game two weeks ago, don’t fret, join fans as the team kicks off the historic first season of the Canadian Premier League as Forge FC takes on Cavalry FC at Tim Hortons Field this Sunday at 1pm.
