Happy weekend friends in self-storage! Even better, happy long weekend!
Wondering what to do this weekend? Since we’re been around for a long time, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite things to do in Milton, Oakville, and Burlington on the Labour Day Weekend. Have some suggestions? Feel free to comment!
Milton – The 56th Annual Steam Era: The Steam Era is a true Milton tradition – we’ve been going since we were little kids and now our kids love it too! Parking is free, adults are only $10 and kids under 12 are free. You can’t beat that! Remember to bring cash because last year we ran into having to walk to the bank machine, and that wasn’t so great. If you’re new to the steam engine culture, let us help you get an idea of what it’s all about – engines – and lots of them. There are daily parades of gas and steam tractors (kids love these), gas engines on display, antique cars (they are gorgeous) and our favourite event, the tractor pull. There’s even a garden and law tractor pull. Check out the website for more details: http://www.steam-era.com/steam-era-2016.html
Burlington – Canada’s Largest Ribfest 2016: The name says it all. Head to Spencer Smith Park on Lakeshore in Burlington for some of the best ribs you’ve ever tasted. This event has been going on for 21 years, run by the Rotary Club of Burlington Lakeshore and they know what they’re doing. Also, bonus if you plan on partaking at the beverage tents and are tired of keeping track of paper tickets (our dog eats ours every year!), there will be payment cards. Mmmmm, we can already smell the smoky goodness. Check out their website for more details (warning: do not click if you are hungry): http://www.canadaslargestribfest.com/
Oakville – Kerrfest 2016: Ok, we admit, this even happens the weekend after Labour Day, but between the Steam Era and Ribfest, you’re already booked anyways. Kerrfest is a free event and has a Kids’ Zone, vintage car show, a skate-boarding competition and live entertainment. There is also a trackless train shuttle, which is pretty cool (or our kids think it’s really cool). Check it out: http://www.kerrfest.ca/#new-page
Obviously, you can always for to the Ex in Toronto on Labour Day and enjoy the Air Show, but if you’re in the mood to stay closer to home, there are some really cool things happening right here in the West GTA.
Happy long weekend!
