There’s frost in the forecast for the last weekend of September but don’t let that slow you down. Here’s our list of five fun things to do in Nova Scotia this weekend:
Head to Tatamagouche and the largest Oktoberfest east of Kitchener-Waterloo in Ontario. The event is run by the North Shore Bavarian Society and this year is the 34th year in a row. They're expecting 3,000 partygoers. There’s a beer garden Saturday afternoon and dances on Friday and Saturday nights. Organizers promise "top notch German bands” that will “play endlessly.”
Lumière Cape Breton
Lumière takes over the streets of Sydney after dark on Saturday. It’s a celebration of the arts tied to Culture Days. Experience theatre, dance, music and visual arts at a range of venues across the city. It all starts just before 7 p.m.
Noggins Farm Corn Maze
Get lost in a giant corn maze. Noggins Corner Farm in Greenwich has an Ancient Rome theme cut into their thousands and thousands of corn stalks this year. Good fun for the entire family. After you find your way out, you can enjoy corn on the cob with melted butter.
Hopscotch Halifax 2013
Take in a little Hopscotch in Halifax: It’s a celebration of hip-hop culture in the city. The event will include concerts and a breakdancing competition. It all starts Friday in Dartmouth Cove with the creation of a huge art wall.
Zombie Trail Run
Run for your life — sort of. The five-kilometre Zombie Trail run is on this weekend. The goal: out-run the zombies and other bad guys and cross the finish line alive. The details: everyone gets a belt and three velcro flags, which represent your health. Runners will race through a trail, dodging zombies and creatures who will try to steal the flags. Lose your flags and you’ve lost your life. The race is Saturday morning at McDonald Sports Park in Waverley. There is an entry fee of $25 for youth and $45 for adults.
