The Outdoor Adventure Show starts tomorrow

Canada's largest outdoor, adventure and travel show is at the Toronto International Centre over the weekend. Kayaks and falconers are just some of the 300 exhibitions, as well as over 100 seminars at the 20th anniversary show that promises to "banish cabin fever" and explores adventures in Ontario.
Visitors can climb the rock wall, watch paddleboard demonstrations in Paddlers Paradise and take part in scuba diving classes in the Demo Pool. A scavenger hunt offers great prizes for kids and the first 100 kids at the show will win a free s'more.
