March Break Events 2019

   

March Break is upon us! The kids are home, the vacation days are planned, but what to do?! We’ve got you! Let the planning begin with us. We have compiled a list from attractions across the province that detail special events, special pricing, or in some cases just must-visit attractions and put them all in one easy-to-find list – YOU’RE WELCOME!

After perusing this list of SO MANY opportunities you are not going to know where to begin…but that’s where this genius idea comes into play: Just scroll, and wherever the cursor stops…GO! …But if that’s too scary (or ridiculous) then by all means browse according to location if you must. We have conveniently sorted the list by region, so get started – you’ve got only 4 more week days left and 6 days total. Get out and enjoy this beautiful province and get creative, get discovering, just simply get out. You’ll be glad you did.
