Thanksgiving weekend is a great time for apple picking and visiting the pumpkin farms with the family! But there are some other great events happening across the region this weekend too!


Ball’s Falls Thanksgiving Festival, Jordan – October 7th – 10th, 2016

The Ball’s Falls Thanksgiving Festival Craft Show and Sale runs over Thanksgiving Weekend (Friday – Monday) and features over 140 vendors. It is a great event that has not just crafts to offer, but also features food, live entertainment, birds of prey, pony rides, children’s activities and heritage activities. Vendors include everyone from photographers and local artists to woodworkers and artisans, and products include everything from homemade bath supplies and candles, decorations, homemade jams and jellies, clothing, and any other knick knacks you can think of. The atmosphere is colourful and fun, and it’s always bustling with people going from tent to tent.
It’s a great destination for a nice fall trip out with the family!
Friday through Monday from 10am to 5pm daily.
