Whoa Events!!!

9 Jun

With the beginning of June, comes events of all sorts. I usually spend 6 or 7 Saturdays each year heading to local events with topics varying from music to culture and food! I’m sure you have noticed that a favourite topic for both Kaylie and I is food. Well I’ll tell you now, you won’t find an event in Huron that doesn’t have great food! Also, try something new… if you want to listen to some of the top opera singers in Canada, hit up the Bayfield Festival of Song this weekend! For more events visit http://www.ontarioswestcoast.ca/events/events.php

I thought I would highlight a few events that are happening in the next week or so.
