With Halloween almost a distant and wet memory and before the Christmas Season kicks into high gear, it seems there is a lull in events across Ontario this weekend.  We searched high and low and there are only a few key events for you to get out to with your family this weekend.  Don’t panic though as it appears that Christmas activities begin next week so we will have tons of fun activities listed from across Ontario from now until the New Year.  So sit back and have a nice relaxing weekend!  While you’re relaxing, you might want to enter our Disney On Ice Princesses & Heroes Contest! :-)
