More = Aerial dance performances every hour, on the hour! James Blonde live throughout the day! (This is James Blonde's first gig, being x-Xprime! They'll be playing at the bottom of every hour, starting at 11:30.) A Charlie Brown Christmas with Peter Shea! (Almost sold out at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, you get a sneak peak in the shop throughout the day.) Smooth grooves with DJ Dave Stiles! And... more. Always more. ;)
Never been to Stratus Vineyards? It's the architecturally stunning property at 2059 Niagara Stone Road in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It also happens to be LEED certified, and a beauty to behold inside and out.
Oh, and they make astonishingly good wine.
