October 19: lots to do in King City

There is something for everyone Saturday, Oct. 19 in King City.

8-12 at the Municipal Centre there is the indoor garage sale!  Perhaps a unique gift can be found there.

11-3 at the Heritage and Cultural Centre there is a Heritage Harvest celebration.  As identified in the poster there are many things happening:  Holland Marsh Food market, music, kids’ activities to name a few.  Plus, the Walter Rollings school room is being re-opened.

1-2:30 there is the TRCA guided walk leaving from Kettle Lake Park as I have mentioned in another post.

2 pm at Hogan’s Inn there is a talk about the The Story of Joker’s Hill hosted by King Township Historical Society.  Its wise to purchase tickets in advance as I expect this event will be well attended.

Nature Walk with TRCA Saturday 10/19

Saturday Oct. 19th 1-2:30 pm there is a walk guided by TRCA leaving from Kettle Lake Park (south of King Road/east of Burns).  This is a wonderful way to experience and learn about the natural heritage in King City.  TRCA requests that you let them know of you intent to join the walk as there is a limitation on numbers. I am planning to take advantage of this opportunity.  More details here. 

Meet Federal Candidates

There is one more opportunity to meet the Federal Candidates:  Thursday, Oct. 10 7-9PM at Municipal Centre. This final event is hosted by CCKT.  Note:  All candidates have been invited; whether they choose to participate is unknown to me.

Meet the Federal Election Candidates

Our riding, the King -Vaughan one is extremely fortunate:  there are 3 all candidate meetings scheduled before the federal election on October 21.  First one is Tuesday Oct. 1 at Nobleton Community Centre (15d Old King Road, Nobleton) hosted by CCKT.  On Oct. 3 there is one at Municipal Centre (2585 King Rd., King City) hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.  And on Oct. 10 there is another one hosted by CCKT at the Municipal Centre in King City.

Holland Marsh Soupfest

The delicious annual Holland Marsh Soupfest is this Saturday, Oct. 5.  It is 11-3 but if you really want to taste as many soups as possible I urge you to go early.  And I encourage you to buy ticket(s) online to avoid a lengthy queue and to take advantage of lower entry fee.
