Five things to do

Mountains of snow fell on Sarnia-Lambton this week and it looks like it is going to stay around for awhile. Don’t let the cold and snow get you down! There are plenty of great things to do in Sarnia-Lambton this weekend!

Enjoy the Snow!

This one is easy advice: get outside and enjoy the snow! Bundle up and revisit your youth! Build a snowman, make snow angels, have a snowball fight! Take the kids to Centennial Park and let them sled down the hills! This is a great, free way to entertain the kids and get them outside! Follow up by stopping in at one of our great local coffee shops such as The Coffee Lodge, Blackwater or Coffee Culture and have a nice warm hot chocolate.
