Summer in the Cities

Summer in the Cities

There is so much to do if you are sticking around the KW area for the summer. Nearly every weekend there is a great festival or event to attend. My family and I love bumping into people from our community, listening to great music or chomping down on some fantastic food.

We have lots planned this summer, and I wanted to share a couple of my favourite events.
