By in Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Thanksgiving from us, here at Active Parents, to you and your family. Make the most of this weekend – and every weekend – with some family time. And we’ll help you get started with the Weekend Wrap Up…


Saturday Weekend Wrap Up


Have you taken your kids to the Kids Club at Michaels? For only $2.00 they get to create an awesome work of art, and you’ll get to shop the store. This week the kids are making an adorable pumpkin ornament.


Thanksgiving weekend is the perfect reason to shop the Burlington Mall Farmers Market for your fresh, local, produce and more! Take the kids and get their help to stock up on fruits and veggies to fill up those school lunch boxes!


If you have a canine lover in your house, they’re sure to love Firehouse Dog. It is this week’s feature as part of the Cineplex Family Favourite Movies. Tickets are only $2.99 per person!


Celebrate the colours of fall during Autumn Harvest in downtown Oakville. There will be hayrides, fall decorations and activities throughout the downtown. In-store activity maps are available online and in Towne Square.


Kids and kids-at-heart will love digging into an irresistibly gross slime project at Michaels MakeBreak event! Supplies will be provided, including pre-made slime.


Bounce the evening away at Rockin’ Saturday at Rockin’ Jump! It’s an all-ages open jump night starting at 8 p.m. Included in your admission are 2 hours of jumping, a free slice of pizza and a fountain drink!



Sunday Weekend Wrap Up

The Art Gallery of Burlington’s Creative Hub is a drop-in open art studio, where kids will have the whole studio to themselves. Rotate through the stations at your own pace, and at each one, create a masterpiece to take home with you! It’s a free drop-in and a definite hidden gem in Burlington.



Come to Michaels MakeBreak and bring the family to personalize pumpkins! Buy a 9” Ashland craft pumpkin for $10, and the rest of the supplies are provided.


Enjoy a guided hike through some of the most lovely trails in our city, and you won’t be disappointed. Each week a skilled and knowledgeable volunteer will guide you through a new path. A great afternoon spent with family!



Create fall memories with the entire family at TERRA’s Fun Fall Fest! Corn maze, treats for kiddies, a selfie station, and fall workshops!


Springridge Farm’s Harvest Festival is this weekend! Take the whole family and enjoy a professional puppet show, wagon rides to the 5-acre corn trail, a spooky boo bar, and pony rides!


Join Safari Niagara for the 5th annual Boo at the Zoo. TRICK or TREAT your way around the zoo brought to you by local businesses. This is a safe and unique Halloween party you do not want to miss!



These events and more are all on our weekend calendar here. Check them all out and plan some local family fun into your weekend! We have your guide to local orchards to pick-your-own apples, and area pumpkin farms, too!
