Pumped for Patios
Around the region
Warmer days are here and that means our local restaurants are gearing up for patio season. Opening dates vary by business, however, we start to see a lot opening up around the region in May! In need of a little inspiration? Check out our waterfront patios to get started.
Visit a Farmers’ Market
Around the region
Farmers’ Markets are returning! While the Belleville Farmers’ Market is open year-round, the Front Street Farmers’ Market reopens on May 6 and the Codrington Farmers’ Market reopens on May 7. Check them out for locally-grown produce, fresh flowers, baked goods and artisan products.
Toymaker Time Machine
Glanmore National Historic Site, Belleville
Toymaker Time Machine is a behind-the-scenes experience at Belleville’s own National Historic Site. Be a museum-maker and develop some light carpentry skills as you re-create a piece of the past, a historic wooden game to take home.
May Days at Breakout Belleville
Belleville Downtown District – All month long
Breakout Belleville Escape Room and Axe Throwing is offering two games for $35/per person this month.
Park it at Presqu’ile
Get some early beach days in at Presqu’ile Provincial Park before the summer crowd picks up. Even if the water is cold, May is a great time to pack a picnic and enjoy the views. If you prefer to be more active, explore their 16 km network of trails and paths.
