Looks like the outdoor activities are warming up in your area Chris! There sure isn't a lack of amusing things to do in your neighbourhood. Great place to live.

Al and Peggy, Spring is in the air.

Malcolm, Tottenham's festival is renowned and attracts people from all over North America

Marc, it is great exposure for local artists and a place for people to acquire a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
