There will also be maple syrup cooking and ice carving demonstrations. See their website for a schedule of activities.

18blocks.com: Corktown has now gone live on 18blocks.com. It is an online neighbourhood notice board. It was founded on a simple insight: that neighbours share more than a postal code. “Now neighbours can network easily and uncover common interests – like gardening, running, or books; resources – like used bikes, tools, or babysitters; and special talents – like tutoring, baking, or dog training.”   Check it out!
