‘Tis the season to get together with friends and family, especially those you don’t get to see very often. Going out and having a good time can get expensive if you aren’t careful about where you are going and how much you are spending. I’ve put together some holiday activities that you can do in Guelph that are friendlier to your budget.
- Walks at the Arboretum (and other parks)
- Skating at Market Square and Sunny Acres Park
- Sledding on local hills
- Sparkles in the Park – entry by donation
- St. Joseph’s Festival of Trees – donations appreciated
There are lots of day-to-day activities around Guelph that cater to different age groups and many demographics. Visit Guelph’s events calendar offers events information for Guelph and the surrounding area. Snap’d Guelph has a Calendar of Upcoming Events that shares events, big and small, around Guelph. Finally, the Guelph Public Library has an events calendar that allows you to plan your activities 90 days ahead of time- there’s something for everyone!
