Things to See & Do
1. Festivals & holidays
From Christmas, Eid and Hannukah to Hallowe'en and Valentine's Day, we celebrate many holidays from many cultures. Downtown London comes alive throughout the year with outdoor festivals; Sunfest, Indiafest, Rib Fest plus many more. In the fall, harvest festivals mark the end of the growing season in Middlesex County. Take a look for yourself.
2. All-season fun
Canada is a land of four seasons: winter, spring, summer and fall. Each season brings different weather and new activities to enjoy.
Try ice skating in the winter. Plan a visit to the sugarbush to sample delicious maple syrup in early Spring. Rollerblade, cycle or walk on our extensive multi-use pathways in the spring, summer and fall. Swim and splash in our pools - indoor, outdoor, wading pool or spray pads.
