Family Fun in February

Only 7 short weeks after ringing in a new year, another reason to celebrate comes our way, Family Day. A day to celebrate the people in our lives who stick by us through thick and thin, to take a break from our everyday grind and spend some quality time together. Being so close to the holidays, it can be hard to come up with fresh, new plans for your family, so we’ve put together a list of fun Family Day activities happening across the province! (We’ve also included a few upcoming day camps running during the February Winter Break so you can get a head start, it will be here before you know it!)
