Kanata 1534

My first year out of Teacher’s College, I worked for an organization that promotes the performing arts around the Sudbury area. It was such a great job, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with varied people doing something that I love to do. I think it really gave me the tools to be a better, more organized teacher. And let me tell you, those people put on a great show. Continue reading Kanata 1534

Keeping Busy During March Break

One day. One day!

The kids are buzzing around the school, and they are psyched that our week-long break is on its way. What are your plans? When I was a kid, I used to love going to spend some time at the library, and really looked forward to some of the activities that they would put on, especially the art and drama activities. They’ve always gotten great guests and facilitators to aid with their projects, and this year is no different. Why not try a program with the Greater Sudbury Public Library?

High Falls In the Fall

Suggestion: spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon hiking at beautiful High Falls, located in Onaping Falls. My family takes pictures there every ten years, but I still like to go yearly to take in te beautiful scenery. We went for a hike through the trail, a first for me this year, and we enjoyed it like crazy. Who knows how many beautiful weekends we have left this fall – might as well enjoy every last bit of them.

Ribfest Weekend – Everybody’s Favourite Way to Celebrate the Long Weekend!

If you live in Sudbury, we always mark the occasion with Sudbury Ribfest. What is it? Glad you asked!

This year, with SIX┬áprofessional rib teams, Downtown’s Ribfest is set to be a guaranteed smash. I’ve attended many times, and it’s always a delicious treat. Taking place downtown, along the Market Square, the one-way streets of the downtown core are closed down to make room for all of the tourists that are making their way from makeshift shop to makeshift shop. Live music dominates downtown, with local bands serenading you all day and all evening. A kids zone – yay! – will entertain the kids. I think this year, they’re also having a classic car show.

The best part, though? Free.

Support Downtown Sudbury this weekend by attending Ribfest, and exploring some of the shops that you haven’t taken the time to go in to in awhile.
