Can you believe it’s Homecoming already?!
With Brock having it’s 50th anniversary to celebrate, I’m a bit biased this week in saying that I think some of the best events in Niagara will be happening right on our campus. From the Grape Stomp today, Brock Cares Day of Service tomorrow, spirited fans decked out in Brock gear at athletic games and photos of people forming “50s” all weekend, this is certainly the place to be.
There is one event in Niagara in particular this week that everyone should be sure to fit in. Definitely make plans to get off campus and check out what those who live in Niagara love to celebrate – the Niagara Wine Festival. This is taking place at Montebello Park (free admission) all weekend for two weeks: Friday-Sunday September 19-21 and also September 26-28. Take in some great live bands and purchase tokens when you arrive to sample dozens of fantastic Niagara wines, great local food, and pick up your commemorative wine glass! This is a festive way to spend an afternoon or evening and a great way to experience what makes our region so unique.
Also consider marking your calendars for next Saturday, September 27th to be part of the Brock float in the Grape & Wine Festival Grande Parade – one of the largest parades in North America right in our downtown!
Have a great week, get involved, and be sure to #ExploreNiagara and share with us how you enjoyed it!
