There are some great activities and events happening this long weekend.
Celebrate Guelph’s heritage on Saturday from 10 am – 2 pm with the John Galt Day activities happenning at Market Square in front of City Hall. Bring the kids down for musical entertainment, an open house at Locomotive 6167, crafts and face painting, historical walks, and free admission to the Guelph Civic Museum. It’s forecasted to be a warm day, so the kids might enjoy a splash in the wading pool or a chance to stand under the fountains.
Canada Food Day celebrations are also happening at City Hall on Saturday. There will be vendors for the market, as well as samples of Guelph’s local foods.
On Sunday, Downtown Guelph is hosting the Lions’ Club Show ‘N Shine car show. Come and check out some of Guelph’s most interesting and well kept cars.
IF you would like to add a little music to your weekend, head to Cambridge for the Mill Race Folk Festival, happening all weekend long. You can find a full schedule including information about the children’s activities at their website.
