It looks like it’s going to be a perfect weekend, weather wise! Luckily, there are a number of great events going on around Almonte! Our town has so much to offer during the summer months; festivals, fairs, farmer’s markets and much, much more. If you haven’t made your weekend plan’s yet, here are some great ideas on things you can do in Almonte…
Porchfest: If you receive my monthly Realtor Ezine (if you don’t, you can subscribe today by sending me an email), you’ll already have all of the details on Porchfest. This Saturday evening, residents of Almonte will be hosting the second annual Mississippi Mills Porchfest, which is sure to be just as wonderful as last year! Local musicians will be setting up on porch’s all around town. Visit the Porchfest website https://www.mmporchfest.com for venue details and performers, or, wander the town and follow your ears! Remember to bring your own lawn chair & water.
Busfusion: If you’ve lived in Almonte for a while, you’ll know all about Busfusion! You’ve probably seen the many Volkswagen Campers that flood our town for one weekend every summer. Busfusion is an annual event that allows Volkswagen Camper owners to camp for 3 nights at the Almonte Fairgrounds. There are events planned throughout the weekend for festival goers including a tie-dye workshop, live music, children’s activities and a puppy parade! Busfusion begins on Thursday, June 6th and runs until Sunday June, 9th, 2019.
Live Streaming of the Raptors Game: The Toronto Raptors will be playing Game 4 of the NBA finals this Friday, June 7t, 2019h. Almonte is the home of basketball inventor Dr. James Naismith. Our small town will be celebrating their history and love of the sport by hosting a live, outdoor screening of this Friday’s game. The first screening, last Sunday, was a huge success! Don’s Meat Market and the mobile Equator Coffee truck will both be on site to provide food and drinks. Visit the Old Town Hall at 7:30 pm this Friday!
The weather is forecast to be hot and sunny this weekend, perfect for any of these great local events. Keep me updated on which event’s you attend! I’d love for you to share your photos with me on Facebook or Instagram. And, I may run in to you around town!
