Looking for something to do in Canada’s Banana Belt this weekend? Here are 3 experiences you can book to kickstart your planning.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
Friday, July 27, 2018
Imagine the sight of hundreds of colourfully lit cyclists roll by, bells clacking, as they partake in a pub crawl on two wheels.
Riders are always trying to outdo each other with their decorations on each ride. If you pay close enough attention, you may catch a glimpse of the couple on a tandem bike which has custom built chandelier installed to hang over them as they ride.
This is Friday Night Lights, a bi-weekly ride that will light up the night!
Riders will meeting up at 7:30pm at Willistead Park. We then take guests out on the town to explore the night life in Windsor. The catch: since it’s a night ride you’ll need lights on your bike. The more lights the better!
Simply put, Friday Night Lights is a pub and grub crawl on two wheels throughout the city of Windsor. While not mandatory, we encourage guests to deck out their bikes in bright lights to light up the night and enjoy the company of good folks and the flavours of three great establishments we visit along the way.
Register in advance for $5 or you can pay $10 upon arrival.
GREAT CANADIAN POUTINE EXPERIENCE
Saturday, July 28, 2018
Get your cheese curd cravings ready because we’ve got a true Canadian tour for you!
The Great Canadian Poutine Experience takes guests on a stroll through the streets of downtown Windsor. Affectionately known as “The Poot Route”, explore the flavours and folklore surrounding Canada’s most iconic dish: the poutine!
On the world’s first poutine specific tour (or so Google tells us), you’ll take in an authentic Quebec-style poutine and sit and chat with a chef who’s a Montreal native. You’ll then take in a true Windsor, multicultural spin on the classic Canadian dish. We are Canada’s fourth most ethnically diverse city, after all.
Along the way, learn about some interesting, long lost tidbits of Canadian history.
