Celebrate Family Day with the kids! Below you’ll find a long list of great things to do in Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Hamilton! Family-friendly events, all in one place to help you make the most of this long weekend.
I remember the very first Family Day (I sound old, I know) but I loved having an extra day to spend with my family. You really do appreciate time together once you have kids. Because we live in the best province in Canada, there is lots of fun to choose from on Family Day. To make it easier to plan something amazing, we pulled all of the events together for you in one easy-to-use list.
Looking for local or driveable events? We can help on both accounts! So many great destinations are hosting activities in Hamilton, Halton and Niagara. You asked and we listened! We are now adding things to do on Family Day in Cambridge, Guelph and Kitchener Waterloo, too.
We’ll be checking out the Little Canada exhibit in Toronto. It’s a miniature display of various iconic and unique Canadian locations, perfect for up close exploring. We can’t wait to tell you about it!
