Acton Winter Carnival 2018

Now with less snow! The balmy weather has impacted the small town Winter Carnival and several of the activities have been made unpossible, that's right, unpossible. No curling, no hockey games and no skating in the park, but everything else is a go. Sadly I missed the pancake breakfast.

Sitting in the west side of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) on top of the Niagara Escarpment and full of about 10,000 people, this town wanted a break in the winter doldrums and planned an annual outdoor day full of family activities. Starting at 11am on Sunday, January 28, 2018, ending at 2pm and held beside Fairy Lake in Prospect Park.

Fires and bannock samples were still welcome
For children there was doggy wagon rides, jousting competitions, face painting, coloured ice block building and much more.

See more of the Sunday Funday festival after the jump.
