Environment Canada is forecasting a weekend full of rain in the area, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get out and have some fun. Here’s five things to do in Sarnia-Lambton this weekend.
Have a beer
The annual Sarnia Beer show is happening this Friday and Saturday at the Bayside Centre in downtown Sarnia. A dozen craft breweries will be there alongside a variety of live music. Tickets cost $10 for one day or $25 for a weekend pass that includes special perks. Doors open at 5 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information go to beershow.ca
Check out some art
As part of First Friday, The Judith and Norman Alix Art Gallery is presenting the second exhibition in its ‘Share the Passion: Gifts of Art’ series called ‘A Keen Eye: Early Donors’ which celebrates the initial group of men and women who inspired the gallery’s permanent collection in the early 1920s. The exhibition offers the chance to see paintings by the Group of Seven, including a never before exhibited oil painting by Group of Seven member A.J. Casson. As always, admission is free.
Learn about history
The Plympton-Wyoming Museum is opened from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m on Saturday. The new 2017 exhibit highlights the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge with two large displays. You can also learn about early settlers, the great storm of 1913 and post-Second World War immigration. Admission is free and the museum is located at 6745 Camlachie Rd. in Camlachie.
Rock out to Bagpipes
The Mudmen bring their rocking Celtic vibe to Station Music Hall in Sarnia this Friday night. The show is part of the band’s Old Plaid Shirt tour and a CD release party. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available at Station Music Hall. Ron MacLean loves them and you might too.
Find some deals
The season opening of the Pinery Antique Flea Market is this Sunday. The opening is also the 6th annual yard sale day. All the regular vendors will be there plus a variety of one time yard sale booths for some extra bargain hunting. The event runs from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
