So March break is right around the corner. If you are staying in the Antigonish area throughout the break and looking for things to do, here are a few ideas:
Programs your kids will love
😀 At the Library
The Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library (PARL) offers many free activities during the break! Make sure to register early as some programs are space limited.
😀 Science fun
The StFX Chemistry dept. offers the X-chem Outreach Science Club.
For more children activities click on the following links (which can also found under the Antigonish Kids Corner tab in the main menu).
😀 Hit the trails
Explore the numerous trails in our area. Enjoy the fresh air whether it’s hiking, coasting, skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing.
No equipment? No worries, the Town of Antigonish Recreation department loans recreational equipment throughout the winter months.
😀 Identify animal tracks
Animal tracks are easy to find in the snow, especially early in the morning. Snowshoe hare, squirrel, grouse, deer, raccoon and mice are some of the most common animal tracks you might encounter.
Hare tracks and grouse tracks
😀 Build a snowman
Although the Snowman Contest is over, you can still submit your snowman pictures to email@example.com (subject: Snowman) to join the Antigonish Snowman Wall of Fame 2017!
😀 Swimming and skating
Take advantage of the free skates and free swims offered by the Town of Antigonish until March 19.
Enjoy a game of bowling, day or night, at Pins Bowling Center.
😀 PC Cooking school
Family cooking classes are offered at the Atlantic Superstore.
😀 Spring cleaning?
Why not. Get an early start on your spring cleaning and get the kids to participate too! Now is the perfect time to go through last year’s summer clothes, which they have probably outgrown. You can drop off clothing and footwear in the designated Canadian Red Cross bins closest to your area.
