Upper Canada Village
October 2015
While we were visiting Alexandria Bay and the 1000 Islands region we took a side trip to Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario. During the day, we took a guided tour of the British Canadian colonial village. After having been to many American colonial museums/villages over the years, it was quite interesting to see the colonial era from the point of view of the British loyalists. After dinner at the McIntosh Inn, we went back to Upper Canada Village which was transformed into Pumpkinferno. A seasonal display of over 6,000 hand carved pumpkins. It was quite a sight.
