In the city: Rockton World’s Fair

This weekend in the city, many of us will celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.  It is usually a time for family traditions, whether they are old or new.  Often holiday traditions are connected to holiday food like turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.  However, other family traditions may include serving dinner to needy families at a local food bank, taking a hike to enjoy the colours of the season, or like many families, going to the Rockton World’s Fair.
