Canuck It Up! In Downtown Amherstburg


Get ready to rock your maple leaves! Canada is in the midst of a year-long celebration of its 150th birthday. Events have been happening all year, with another taking place in just a couple of weeks. On August 5-6, the town of Amherstburg, Ontario is hosting Canuck It Up!, a two-day celebration that’s great for the entire family!

Festivities are being held in downtown Amherstburg, just five minutes away from beautiful Willowood RV Resort & Campground. Guests can head to historic King’s Navy Yard Park for all sorts of free fun. Visit the world’s largest rubber duck, or step aboard the tall ship Appledore V for a tour of the deck. Shoppers can browse through the Amherstburg Farmer’s Market and food court area, while youngsters enjoy time at the Kids Zone. As you’re walking around, keep an eye out for stilt performers and the musical talents of The Diplomats Drum and Bugle Corps. Lumberjack shows will be taking place throughout the day, and visitors can take a traditional horse-drawn carriage ride through downtown Amherstburg.
