Where to spend Labour Day in St. Catharines

The extended weekend is almost here. Where will you spend Labour Day near our St. Catharines apartments? For today’s post, the Panoramic Properties blog team has a few local suggestions for places to go and things to do for the upcoming civic holiday.


A holiday parade


The annual Merritton Labour Day Parade will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, September 7th. Don’t miss this family-friendly kickoff to Labour Day 2015. The parade begins at the Pen Centre (221 Glendale Avenue), a 15-minute drive from Westgate Village Apartments (30 Bradmon Drive), and moves east until arriving on the grounds of the Merritton Community Centre (7 Park Avenue), just over a ten-minute drive from Linwell Road Apartments (473 Linwell Road).


Festivities for all


The parade is just the start of the festivities planned by the Lions Club in honour of the September holiday. After the parade, attend the Lions Club Dance, feast on delicious barbeque or participate in fun-filled carnival games. There will also be carnival rides for all to enjoy throughout the weekend. All of these events will take place in and around the Merritton Community Centre, less than a ten-minute drive from Church Apartments (99 Church Street).


Savour summer in the great outdoors


Labour Day Weekend is often considered the close of the summer season. Take advantage of your day off from work to savour summer-only activities nearby before cooler temperatures arrive. Happy Rolph’s Animal Farm (650 Read Road) is a popular pick for all ages. Experience an impressive variety of animals, birds and plants in a scenic setting along Lake Ontario. This local destination is only about a five-minute drive from Scott Apartments (375 Scott Street).


Explore the port


This Labour Day, explore Port Dalhousie Harbour, around a ten-minute drive from Westchester Apartments (139-143 Westchester Street). The civic holiday is the last time the port is open for the season. In addition to great views of the dock, you will also find picnic areas, a playground, the popular Boardwalk and plenty of easy access to the beach.


Happy Labour Day from the blog team at Panoramic Properties! We hope today’s post helps you make the most of the extended weekend without traveling far from St. Catharines. For additional information about our St. Catharines apartments, visit our website today.
