Family-Friendly Long Weekend Fun

Aug 01, 2018

Civic holiday, commonly known as the August long weekend, is approaching fast. And that means it’s time to start exploring family friendly ideas for weekend fun. As the biggest peak summer weekend in Canada, there’s lots to do but also lots of people doing it! With a little research and planning, it’s easy to find ideas for the long weekend that will please the whole family. To help you get a jump on August long weekend planning, Timbercreek brings you this list of great options for family friendly fun.

Civic Holiday Fun

Baseball Game

If you live in Toronto, there’s no better way to capitalize on summer than by checking out a Jays game. Always putting on an entertaining show, check out more.

Go to the Beach

From coast to coast, even in the heart of the prairies, we’re lucky to have at least a semblance of beach lifestyle. Even on a lake, sandy and even stoney beaches can bring you out of city doldrums and into the magic of summer holidays. Find out more.

Check out a Food Festival

With the rise of food trucks and travelling food festivals, summer has another great option for weekend fun. From ribfests to farmer’s markets and ice cream carnivals, a food festival can be a fun outdoor event suitable for the whole family. Learn more.

Go Camping

There may be no more iconic an activity in Canada than camping -- especially on the August long weekend. Toss your tent in the car, throw some food in a cooler, and hit the road. Keep in mind that likely half of our 36.2 million population are also out camping, so best to book a site beforehand! Learn more.

Camping

The Zoo

What’s better for family fun than the zoo or an aquarium? Perfect for a whole day of exploration (and even education), zoos and aquariums are super entertaining, and not just for kids. Add some food, drinks, and live music (i.e. Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto) and you’ve got a great long weekend activity. Learn more.

Staycation

Go against the crowd with this one and hunker down for a quiet (or rowdy!) staycation. A great way to beat the crowds and the heat is to plan out some chill time at home. Line up a monster movie playlist, get some grillables, set up the croquet, and go to town. Learn more.

Timbercreek hopes this list give you some ideas for family friendly fun this August long weekend. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
