Thanksgiving weekend marked the beginning of harvest season (or the end, if your harvest season involved picking apples in Bowmanville). We’re all wearing scarves, the leaves are turning yellow, and it’s time to roll out the cornucopia of gourds and wild corn.
The best places to find gourds and wild corn are harvest-themed events, but they don’t usually happen in the centre of the city. Luckily, Harvest Family Fun Day at the Brick Works is smack-dab in the middle of a valley in the middle of the city (that’s so L.A.). In addition to a farmer’s market, there will be sculpture creating, quarry exploring, eating, drinking, music, and yes – free pumpkins*.
The Brick Works is hard to get to, but the good folks at Evergreen are running a free hybrid-electric shuttle bus from Broadview Station (departs every half hour between 10:45am and 4:45pm).
*Free pumpkins and apple cider for the first 100 visitors.
