In a couple of weeks, the second annual Toronto Cider Festival rolls into Dundas Square on Saturday August 27, 2016. If you’re a cider lover, you’re not going to want to miss this chance to try over 40 different ciders from 20 different cideries from across Canada and abroad. Last year the festival sold out, so you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on some tickets early.
In the evening, A VIP session takes place; providing exclusive early admission to the evening session, 10 sample tokens and access to a “Food and Cider Pairing” discussion led by Doris Miculan Bradley – a 20-year industry professional and the Canadian Brand Ambassador for The Wines of Vinho Verde.
As a bonus for attendees, this year there will be some pretty awesome contests at the festival. (more…)
Did you know? According to Coleman Canada nearly two-thirds of Canadians spend fewer than two hours per week outside doing recreational activities. How sad is that? We have such beautiful parks and outdoor spaces all over Canada.
Because of this, the Get Outside Day movement, to excite and encourage Canadians to get outside was launched. July 15th, 2016 is National Get Outside Day. Coleman continues to petition the Canadian government to declare one day this summer National Get Outside Day.
“As Canadians, we’re proud to call this beautiful country home, but it’s unfortunate that so many of us are unable to find the time to get outside and enjoy what Canada has to offer,” said Ezio Sbrizzi, President, Coleman Canada. “As Canada’s leading outdoor company, we needed to do something about it which is why we started the Get Outside campaign. Now more than ever we remain committed to the cause, rallying the Canadian government to allow all of us more time to enjoy our country’s great outdoors. We know that’s a long shot for this year, but our entire team at Coleman will be taking July 15th off to recognize and celebrate Get Outside Day at Bronte Creek Provincial Park in Oakville, Ontario. We encourage all Canadians to get outside that day to support the cause!”
That’s a cause I can get behind! To learn more about the petition and for inspiration and ideas on how you can #GetOutside this summer, visit www.getoutsidecanada.com

According to a recent survey by Vision Critical, 47% of millennials (18 to 34) had adventure experiences on their life lists, followed in second place with 35% of Generation Xers (35-54).
I definitely fall within that 47%! My bucket list is streamlined by age so that I have specific dates to work towards. Like my 30th birthday!
How about putting those bucket list goals towards a good cause?
From now until May 2016, you’re invited to commit to skydiving, bungee jumping, ziplining, indoor skydiving, racetrack car lapping, riding a hot air balloon or whatever your heart desires. Choose your activity, and then get donations from family or friends, or by hosting events, individuals will raise money for Parkinson’s with encouragement from an individual partner living with the condition.
“We knew there was a desire to give; and sensed there was a desire to give differently,” [says] Jon Collins, Senior Manager, Events and Partnerships at Parkinson Canada. “Many Canadians – particularly millennials – are eager to try new and different things.”
Valentine’s Day is kind of my favourite holiday ever! I was very happy to be able to partner with one of my favourite coffee shops, Aroma Espresso Bar, to collaborate with some of my favourite social people to celebrate all things hearts and hot chocolate.
