I. Family & Kids Activities this weekend

1. December Holiday Break

Fun, activities and learning are on our calendar for Winter Break. In fact, there will be a sleigh’s worth of fun for the whole family at the Aviation Museum! Our favourite holiday aeronautical super flyer – the reindeer – will make an appearance at the craft activity station where we’re making Reindeer Boomerangs. We’ll have a dress-up station stocked with vintage aviation uniforms and don’t forget to drop by Skyways – our interactive kids play zone.

If Keith Richards, Joan Jett and Ray Charles could somehow spawn a love child, it’d be Romi Mayes (suitably pronounced RAW-ME).
