Family Day Oakville 2015 – Looking for things to do with your kids?
Family Day Oakville 2015 – Family Day is a statutory holiday in Ontario (and other provinces B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba & P.E.I.) that falls on the 3rd Monday of February every year. As the name says it is meant to spend time together, as a family. Doing fun things, activities, playing, being active, exploring – whatever your family likes to do together.
Figuring out what to do on Family Day can be almost as challenging as finding time to spend together that isn’t running around doing errands, grocery shopping, etc… So in hopes to give you some ideas of the many things do do with your kids this Family Day in Oakville here is a compiled list of everything I’ve found to do in and around Oakville this Family Day.
