Free Family Day movie in Almonte!

Bring the family to the Almonte Old Town Hall on Family Day for an 11:00 am showing of “Playing with Fire”. Refreshments will be available for sale. The movie is sure to please all ages: “When straight-laced fire superintendent Jake Carson (John Cena) and his elite team of expert firefighters (Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo and Tyler Mane) come to the rescue of three siblings (Brianna Hildebrand, Christian Convery and Finley Rose Slater) in the path of an encroaching wildfire, they quickly realize that no amount of training could prepare them for their most challenging job yet — babysitters. Unable to locate the children’s parents, the firefighters have their lives, jobs and even their fire depot turned upside down and quickly learn that kids — much like fires — are wild and unpredictable.”



Skating and Sliding!

Grab your skates and helmet and head to the rink for some family fun. Tim Horton’s is sponsoring free Family Day skating in Almonte from 1-3 and Pakenham from 3-5.

If you prefer sliding, there is a GREAT hill just steps from the Almonte arena at Gemmil Park.


How will you be spending your family day?
