Family Day has become a much-needed respite for those suffering from the February blahs. Who doesn’t love a long weekend in February? Here in Grey County, a long list of Family Day activities offers a great chance to chill out with your family.
Every summer, the Grey Roots Museum and Archives opens the Moreston Heritage Village, a place where dozens of knowledgeable interpreters walk you through daily life in Grey County from the time of the first people to the 1930's. Visit a log home, a farmstead, country church, blacksmith shop and see steam engines at work.
Fall fairs are well underway in Grey County. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
