If anyone tells you there’s nothing to do in Windsor, Ontario, this weekend, give them the most soul piercing stare that even Samuel L. Jackson would be proud of.
Here are four events taking place this Saturday, November 30, 2019, that we wish we could clone ourselves to attend them all.
FORWARDS & BACKWARDS
Wards Of Windsor Music Project brings together ten songwriters born, raised and rooted in Windsor, Ontario. Each songwriter wrote and recorded a song about their neighbourhood.
This live concert event showcases all ten artists in an intimate setting at historic Mackenzie Hall performing their song from the album and telling the stories of our town.
Hosted by Dan MacDonald of AM800 CKLW, the event still has a few tickets available.
MILL ST. NIGHT MARKET
The final Mill St. Market of the season is going to be a festive one! The festivities begin at 4:00pm and run until 9:00pm. It will coincide with the Leamington Santa Claus Parade, making for a great family activity. WindsorEats will be there once again in our Traveller, this time serving up a Hot Buttered Rum Coffee to help keep you warm.
Think of them as brightly-decorated railcars full of Christmas cheer. The CP Holiday Train is a fundraiser for food banks in Canada and the U.S., having raised close to C$12 million and 3.9 million pounds of food since the program started in 1999.
The Holiday Train make stops in communities, offering free concerts and seasonal festivities from a boxcar turned into a travelling stage. This year, Windsor will be graced by the performance of Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Band.
The concerts are always free, but you’re encouraged to make a donation to the local food bank—either a non-perishable food item or a cash donation. All contributions will stay within the local community.
The train will arrive at 5:20pm in the CP Yard at Erie Street West and Janette Street. The concert and festivities will take place from 6:00pm to 6:30pm.
DARK SKY NIGHT
Explore Point Pelee National Park on your own after dark and experience the dark skies. You will have the opportunity to stay late and see what goes on after dark. No formal programs will take place, but, visitors can pick up a seasonal star chart at the gate upon arrival. Park will remain open until midnight unless otherwise stated.
