Family day celebrates the importance of families, family life, and making the effort to spend quality time with the people we love. Having this holiday off provides the chance to dedicate time we would otherwise be working to the special people in our lives. Take a moment to catch up and reconnect with those you hold dear.
What to do on Family Day?
Living in such an amazing place offers some fantastic experiences and adventures. Our Apple Pie Trail Partners and stops are a great place to start. We hope this summary of some exciting things you and your family can take part in helps make your decision nice and easy!
Blue Mountain Village
The Village is always a hub of action and excitement. With the majestic mountain as a back drop and easy access to both shops and restaurants, this is a perfect spot for the entire family. Family Day weekend will be no different, plus will have a few extra fabulous activities to engage in. Work together in their crazy fun scavenger hunt, dance like no one is watching to the sounds of drums or the music from the DJ, learn something new with the Birds of Prey show and so much more. In true Blue Mountain fashion, end your day with a fabulous display of fireworks!
