It’s that time of the year where events start popping up every weekend and it gets more and more challenging to plan your schedule. This weekend brings us Springlicious 2013!
Last year one of our first articles was discussing Springlicious 2012. It was a great event and fun to attend. You can read about it here.
This year’s event is pretty exciting. Canadian guitar master David Wilcox is performing on Saturday night. There is a full-sized carnival, School-A-Palooza (Friday night), a Bubbleology Show, the ‘Reptile Kingdom’ Zone, pony rides, kid workshops, and a “Construction Camp” where kids will build a full-size cabin. To check out a list of events and their times, please visit the official Springlicious 2013 schedule.
The all-day carnival pass runs $35, but for a limited-time only they are available for $20. At the time of this writing, there are currently only 100 passes available — they will go fast so make sure you hurry! After these sell out, they will only be offering the regular $35 passes. If you want a passes please contact 905-356-5444.
For anyone attending this year’s event, here are some tips:
- You don’t need money to enjoy this event. Entry to the main event is free. Of course any rides and food will have a cost.
- Wear comfortable shoes. This may seem like a no-brainer but Queen street can be pretty long if you’re wearing the new sandals you just bought and haven’t broken in.
- Check out the schedule and plan ahead.
- Parking is plenty and the cost is nominal.
- Bring sunscreen AND an umbrella. It’s a weird time of the year and you never know what’s going to happen.
- Come hungry. There’s plenty of food vendors and many restaurants and pubs are also open to customers.
- If you plan on drinking bring a designated driver. It will be a fully-licensed street and there are several places to consume alcohol so please practice safety.
