If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the Civic Holiday weekend, Canal Days Marine Heritage Festival in Port Colborne is worth exploring. This is Port Colborne’s signature event, and comprises a number of fascinating attractions as marine vessels gather for four days to celebrate the city’s maritime heritage along the canal.

The festival doesn’t stop at the waterfront. Canal Days features many activities at dozens of different venues, like H.H. Knoll Lakeview Park, which will host Ontario’s Largest Classic Car Show alongside the International Kite Show.
