It’s the long weekend! Time to get up and out of the house. If you’re staying in the area this Labour Day Weekend you are in for a treat; the Niagara area is alive with activities to keep everyone in the family entertained! With so much going on, we’ve made a list of Niagara Labour Day weekend activities that you and your kids are going to love.
Niagara Greek Festival
Experience a true Greek celebration complete with dancing, music, and food! The Niagara Greek Festival features great traditional music and events that showcase Kalamatiano, Tsamiko, and Zeimbekiko dances. As you make your way through the Agora marketplace, purchase handcrafted items and food to take home with you. Of course, don’t forget to visit the Kidz Zone to keep little ones happy and busy with inflatables, face painting, crafts, and tasty treats!
If you’ve never experienced the fireworks shows over Niagara Falls you are missing out! If you have, you know exactly why you need to go back. Canada’s longest-running fireworks series is set against the magnificent falls, featuring true masters of their craft. This event brings in thousands of spectators every year, celebrating with an incredible spectacle. Your family is sure to have a weekend they’ll never forget.
Summer Music Series at Niagara Parks
Happening all summer long, evenings are coming alive with the spectacular Summer Music Series, where some of Canada’s most diverse and talented musicians are showcased for free! This is a great opportunity to cap off your trip with some truly incredible music. After spending your day at the falls, exploring Old Fort Erie, or whatever else your heart desires, Queen Victoria Place has some concerts that will get you up on your feet.
Learn about the migration of the monarch butterfly, explore educational presentations, and help tag butterflies that are set to fly south to Mexico for the winter! For those with budding environmentalists in the family, Majestic Monarchs is going to be a real treat. An essential part of monitoring the population of the species, tagging allows scientists to track progress and evaluate the success of migrations. This important environmental stewardship initiative is not only inspiring and beautiful but also truly educational.
