The Redpath Museum is holding an an evening in ancient Rome. It's a three-course Roman banquet (in
Latin, it's called a 'cena'). It's part of Archaeology Month at the museum.

You not only get to eat like Romans, you also learn about their diet and help prepare some of the meal. The event is in both English and French, and it's for the whole family. 

Stephanie Maurel is leading the feast.
She's a Concordia grad in Classics and Archaeology. She talks with our host Sonali Karnick about stomping grapes, mixing spices and the Roman love of honey.

Ormstown Expo, 100 years old

anniversary-ad.png
The Ormstown Expo -  also known as the Ormstown Fair - is celebrating 100 years!
What started off as a livestock exhibit for the village in 1909, is now one of the province's "not to be missed" summer events.

Steve Lalonde is a popcorn and chicken farmer.
He's been involved with the Fair for more than 20years.
Steve says the anticipation leading up to the early summer event is always great.
He spoke with All in a Weekend's host Sonali Karnick from Ormstown, where the fairgrounds open as of 8:30 this morning.
