Cornwall and the Counties’ Historic Gems Open Their Doors
Cornwall, ON – August 27, 2013 – Doors Open is a province wide celebration of history and heritage that has been ongoing since 2002. From April through October, communities throughout the province “open the doors” to their many heritage sites, such as museums, churches and other historical sites for the public to experience. This weekend, September 7-8, its Cornwall and the Counties turn!
One of the coolest parts of Doors Open is that many of these historical sites are not typically available for the public to see. Doors Open is a once a year opportunity to experience totally cool, and totally exclusive, historical sites, attractions and exhibits, all for free!
Cornwall and The United Counties will present 19 historical sites for everyone to enjoy. Check out the full listing with dates and times and experience our region’s robust heritage!
Christmas spirit is alive and well in Cornwall and the Counties as Upper Canada Village's Alight at Night and The Alexandria Festival of Lights prepare to light up the region with their spectacular displays of Christmas lights.
One of the most fascinating displays of culture occurs at the Akwesasne International Powwow. On September 6 - 7, celebrate the traditions of the First Nation people.
