This has been a summer like no other, but Downtown Oakville has made the most of it, with a thriving patio scene, beautiful lakeside views, and music in Towne Square (if you haven’t been yet, check it out this Saturday, September 5 from 7-9 p.m.). As we approach the end of this historic summer, it’s important to enjoy what’s left of the warm weather, starting this Labour Day weekend. Here, we’ve put together a fun #DTOakville itinerary for this holiday Monday. Remember, parking is free all weekend starting Friday at 6 p.m. through to Monday.

But first, coffee
Wake up and fuel your day with a cup of freshly brewed coffee from Second Cup (open 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.) or Tribeca (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
