Free (or Cheap) Activities to Keep the Kids Busy this Winter Break
Dec 22, 2016
With school out and the kids home for their winter break, they’ll need to be kept busy. We all know celebrating the holidays can be tough on your wallet, but there are many ways to enjoy the city without spending any or much money at all.
1) Celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Square
Ring in 2017 and kick-off Canada 150 at Mississauga Celebration Square – the largest New Year’s bash in the city. There will be live performances by Canadian chart topper Coleman Hell, many delicious food trucks and a countdown to midnight with an exciting fireworks finale. Get the kids bundled up and come out to this fun event.
5) Explore the Parks
The city’s parks are a completely different experience when you visit during the winter. Head over to Erindale Park, Meadowvale Conservation Area or the Waterfront Trail for some beautiful snowy views. Make sure to keep an eye out on the weather and wear your warmest boots, clothes and favourite accessories.
