What to Do This Weekend - Fairs, Plays, New Family Fun ... and even a visit with Santa!

Well, Folks: Two things
  1. It is the weekend of the Fall Fair... and...
  2. Christmas events have officially started for the Season!
Oh yeah, you read that last part right...This weekend marks the Colony of Avalon's Christmas Open House (Saturday and Sunday)! There will be plenty to see in their gift shop and 17th century replica kitchen and I have to say, methinks there will be a trip to Ferryland for me in the next couple of days ;) But that is not all for Christmas, no sirree: Santa is scheduled to make an early-bird appearance at the SPCA Fall Fair this Saturday at 1PM! Children are welcome to bring their letters if they already have them done.

As for Fall Fairs, well, the SPCA isn't the only one - on Saturday there are the following events planned in and around the city: St. James United Church Sale & Morning Coffee; St. John the Evangelist Flea Market; St. Mark's Church Fall Fair; St. Peter's Parish Fall Fair; and the True Crafter's Fair...and on Sunday, there is the International Food and Craft Fair at the Holiday Inn. Details on all these events can be found in the calendar

We are into a new month (nah... ya don't say?) and that brings a change in the theme of the Fluvarium Kid's Program - Fish Nests! Children will learn all about how trout prepare their nests and lay their eggs... and they may even see a female do just that in the underground viewing area! Saturdays and Sunday at 1:30.

Botanical Garden Family fun program continues and this is also the last weekend, I believe, for their Edible Garden. If it is decent out, it is always well worth a stroll.

Also, don't forget: Pony rides for kids ($5) every weekend at Clovelly Stables Family Sundays!

The theme for The Rooms Family Fun Program this weekend is Fun with Flags, children will learn why and how  flags were so important in days gone by and will make their own special family flag! Sunday 2-4 PM. The Rooms also has a family-friendly play on Sunday as part of the Storytelling Festival: Nutty Neighbours and Gluttonous Guests... pop over and make an afternoon of it!

As always, you can find details for these events and more in my calendar here. In the meantime, here is a snapshot of the week ahead.... have a good one!
