Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. When it comes to family-friendly fun, Autumn always brings its ‘A’ game. To name just a couple – Fall Fairs and Halloween! You can always count on team Autumn for a fun family day trip to Ontario’s cottage country.
At the centre of all that fun is always THE PUMPKIN. If Autumn had a mascot, it would be that delicious orange canvas, just waiting to be made into a spicey latte or a backlit carving of the latest marvel character. So in honour of all things Pumpkin we have your go to guide of Pumpkin events north of Toronto.
