Make the Most of Your May Long Weekend

Long weekends are about more than an extra day off and time to sleep in (though we admit, those are two pretty big perks!). Recharge, refuel, and relax with these fun long weekend activity suggestions.


Try a new place to eat

Sit down and grab a bite or take your order to go. Whether you’re in the mood for a slice of pizza, loaded tater tots, a classic burger and fries, or a morning jolt of caffeine, we’ve got you covered. Try a new place to eat or revisit your favourite spots and choose something different on the menu for a delicious start to your long weekend.


Cool down and relax at the movies

While we’re all for outdoor fun, sometimes you need to take a break and cool off indoors. What better way to relax in the AC that catching a new flick at the movie theatre? Grab the kiddos and check out Super Mario or make it a date night (don’t forget the snacks and popcorn) and catch some action with Guardians of the Galaxy.


Finish that book you started

We get it—you sit down to read with a new book and then all of a sudden the dog is barking, the kids want a snack, and your phone starts buzzing, right? Put your phone on silent this weekend and set aside some quiet time to read a few pages (or a few chapters) of your current read, or dive into a new book and lose yourself in a great story.

Meet up with friends and family

Hiking? Lake day? Backyard BBQ? Nothing says long weekend fun like time with friends and family. Spend an afternoon playing games in the park, spray on your sunscreen and splish splash in the sprinklers or have a sweet treat game night and invite everyone to bring their favourite board game and a dessert of their choice.

Whatever you get up to this weekend, we wish you a safe, fun, and sun-filled good time.
