    Located on the eastern edge of Thunder Bay, Ontario above the Trans Canada Highway is the Terry Fox Memorial and Outlook.
    Here you will find breath taking views of Lake Superior and a larger than life bronze statue of Terry Fox heading west.
    Terry started his Marathon of Hope on April 12th, 1980 in St. John's Newfoundland by dipping his prosthetic leg into the Atlantic Ocean and had hopes and dreams of reaching the Pacific Ocean on the other side of the country on his journey to raise Cancer awareness.
    I was privileged to see and shake hands with this amazing Canadian as he made his way through Burlington, Ontario and l will never forget his smile and the sheer determination he had.
    Emotional and inspiring, the Terry Fox Memorial is one road side stop not to be missed!
    Sadly, after 143 days and 5,373 kms Terry's heroic journey ended when his cancer returned and he was forced to stop between Thunder Bay and Nipigon.

    It’s the moment you walk down the forested path and see Snowberry Stage. It’s dancing with your toes in the soft grass. It’s kicking back on your tarp with your hat tipped over your eyes, listening to the music while the sun warms your cheeks. It’s running into old friends and making new ones. It’s discussing the music, in-depth and openly. It’s taking the time to enjoy each other’s company and appreciate the things that are truly important in life.

    The Winnipeg Folk Fest is the culmination of everything great about the local folk community. For four days every July, thousands gather at Bird’s Hill Park to celebrate and enjoy exceptional music with  friends and family. You’re home at the Winnipeg Folk Fest. There is a little something for everyone with a range of roots, world music, indie-rock, electronic, country, Celtic and Americana genres. Many of the 75+ artists in the lineup are playing in Manitoba for the very first time!

    2019 Winnipeg Folk Fest, July 11-14

    The Banff Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K offers runners of all abilities the chance to participate in this truly special event. Imagine yourself on a journey that flows from Banff Central Park, runs past Vermilion Lakes, up the Bow Valley Parkway and loops to finish in beautiful downtown Banff.  It is the running adventure of a lifetime.

    The scenery is breathtaking and you will experience many different interpretive, geographical, wilderness and historical stages on your adventure. Run by the stunning mountain vistas known to Banff National Park, Moose Meadows, the new Legacy Trail, and serene Vermillion Lakes.

    Interpretive stations at each of these stages will be along the way at the aid stations if you want to learn more about your journey. Although the run takes place in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, the course is not too grueling with a slightly rolling and fairly flat terrain.

    Starting in the picturesque mountain village of Banff, full and half marathon participants will flow through a series of incredible natural, wildlife, and historical stages as they pass by the serene Vermilion Lakes and journey along the stunning Bow Valley Parkway. 

    The return trek brings you alongside the Bow River and over Banff’s famous bridges finishing to cheering crowds in Banff’s downtown Central Park.  The participants in the 10k will complete a 2 loop “Tour de Banff” that travels around Banff via the beautiful Bow River Trails and local streets passing by many famous Banff attractions including Banff Central Park, Bow Falls, Parks Headquarters, Banff Indian Trading Post, Banff Ave Bridge and more!

    Register Early and even if you aren't a runner, get out and cheer the runners on and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    The Long John Jamboree is an incredible party and winter festival to celebrate the arrival of spring in Yellowknife, NWT.

    The Jamboree takes place on a frozen Great Slave Lake, the second largest lake in Northwest Territories.

    Outdoor games such as pond hockey, ice carving, curling, and lumber jack racing are constantly going down within the Jamboree’s grounds.

    Take a helicopter ride over the lake for some stunning photo opportunities!

    There are dogsled races and rides for all to enjoy and be sure not to miss the pancake and chilli cook-offs too.

    So many fun events and activities but be sure not to miss the Burn On The Bay and the parties within the Snow King Ice Castle.
