Elaine Sia | January 18, 2018

Family Day (February 19) is about making memories with your loved ones and celebrating togetherness. It’s time to shake off those winter blahs. We’re happy to share all kinds of fantastic ideas that the whole family will enjoy throughout the whole Family Day weekend! For the most recent updates, keep an eye on our Windsor Essex Family Day Guide – it will be your secret weapon for a weekend everyone in the family will want to remember. 

Want to have a splashing good time? Adventure Bay Family Water Park is a true local gem – packed to the brim with everyone’s favourite water park attractions. Wave pool with zero entry where even the most hesitant swimmers can splash in the shallow end while the adventurous execute daring rolls in the deep end? Check. An exciting water coaster that blasts you uphill? Check. A splash zone where the water never stops flowing and giant buckets of water tip? Check. And of course, a lazy river is essential to recover your energy before finding your next thrill. The fun times never stop flowing at this water park – take advantage of their extended hours through the Family Day weekend!

How about a dose of culture and history hidden in plenty of hands-on, interactive fun? Your kids won’t even realize they’re learning! Along with their regular exhibits tracing the history of Windsor from pre-history to current, the museum is launching FIVE new exhibits on Saturday, February 17 2018. To celebrate, Museum Windsor is offering FREE admission and an array of kid-friendly fun including children’s crafts, balloon animals, and magic tricks.

Don’t forget that local towns also often want to help families live a healthy and active lifestyle – and what better way to do this than to encourage families to have fun together? Check local municipal calendars for activities like ice skating, swimming, games nights, and more fun – often offered for free to celebrate Family Day. After all, being active as a family strengthens not only everyone’s heart, lungs, bones and muscles, but also family relationships, give you plenty of opportunities to reconnect and spend some quality time together.
