March out of the cold!

The weather outside continues to be frightful for those who aren’t into outdoor activities. Here’s our ROAM winter warm-up guide of activities that can help you get through what remains of this truly Canadian winter.

Family Day Adventures

It’s a long stretch from New Years to Victoria Day, so along came Family Day to give us a well-deserved mid-winter break. It’s only been around in Ontario since 2008, but a variety of events have now made it a well-established holiday for families to enjoy. 

Week 10 - A Family Fun Pack

Get ready for some major ROAMing with the Week 10 Family Fun Pack Prize as the Pioneer ROAM Great Winter Warm-Up Contest shifts into the New Year.

We’ll be awarding three prize packages valued at about $250 each with passes for six attractions across Ontario. So let’s get started. 

‘Cars and Stars’ at Sunset Speedway

Our friends at Sunset Speedway are hosting a special two-day event this weekend – it’s what you might call ‘Cars and Stars’ – featuring top drivers from a variety of classes along with two well-known singing stars.

If you haven’t experienced the excitement of stock car racing, this is a great opportunity to see the best of the best on a one-third mile, paved oval track with steep banked corners that deliver edge-of-the-seat action.

The weekend kicks off Saturday, Sept. 28 with Canadian country signing star Jason McCoy, a multiple award winner both as a solo singer as well as part of the group, Road Hammers. After singing the anthems, and dropping the green flag for the first race, Jason will be available for autographs.

The day will feature qualifying races for all divisions including Late Model, Super Stock, Mini Stock, and OSCAAR Modifieds, the ‘bad boys’ of racing.

Another crowd pleaser is the Hurricane Midgets, tiny sprint cars powered by 440 snowmobile engines that reach upwards of 145 km/h (90 mpg), with so much speed they keep you on the edge of your seats.

Come back Sunday for another day of racing along with special guest star Veronica, a singer who has headlined on Family Channel’s Big Ticket Summer Concert as well as being featured in FAZE magazine.

The action starts at 1:30 p.m. Sunday

Don't Fret the Fall Stuff

Back to school along with shorter, cooler days may shout September’s here, but don’t let that stop you from heating up your weekends. Whether it’s a night on the red carpet, or an afternoon of art viewing, there’s plenty to enjoy! MORE>>
