Added: Jul 05, 2013
Category: What's up

In addition to plays at the Shaw, the events at Fort George, walking tours, winery events, culinary events, and just chillin’ at your vacation home, there are a couple of things going on in town that you might find worth checking out!

 

As always we have the farmer’s market Saturday mornings by the Shopper’s Drug Mart parking lot on Hwy 55, across from Jackson Trigg’s. Of course it is always something special when in NOTL, so check out the vendors and the food trucks!! One of my favourite restaurants is Garrison House I just love their welsh rarebit and a salad with a draft beer, so if you don’t make it for lunch at the Farmer’s Market, you can always pop into the patio at Garrison House!

 

Did you know that it is the Cherry Festival this weekend!! Located on Byron between King and Wellington, St Mark’s Anglican Church annual Cherry Festival is always a good time! Come join the festivities and the cherries between 9:00 and 3:00! Music, vendors, and cherry pie with vanilla ice cream….does it get any better than that??!!

Petticoats, Boots and Muskets offers a glimpse into the domestic side of life during the war of 1812, told in song, words, and humour. Local heroes, saints and sinners all have their moment to shine in this cabaret version of Canada’s historic war – told with a nod to the absurd, as well as the facts.   Come and celebrate Niagara’s local history with some authentic period snacks – made by Pam Mundy who will also serve you some lemonade and share secrets of the kitchen. (Not to be missed – Pam’s rosewater iced cookies, and her famous shortbread.) In a tent tavern “The Black Swan” (affectionately remembering one of Niagara’s early pubs) a group of young actors challenge some of the myths and legends of the War of 1812. Why did General Brock charge up a steep hill directly into the face of the enemy? Did Laura actually walk with a cow? And what about those plucky local women who personally attacked invading Americans? You can find out more, and leave singing a song or two, in this lunchtime romp through history. When: Saturdays & Sundays at 12.30 pm from July 6 to August 25. (no shows on August ¾ & 10/11) Tickets: $15 includes admission to the Museum (on Castlereigh and Davy St)

 

Don’t forget that if you have little kids that there is a wading pool and playground in Simcoe Park, just across from where the Horse and Carriages are parked at the corner and King and Queen!   Bigger kids there is the public swimming pool on King and Centre streets, for those who are still   are kids at heart, you can cool off there too!
