1. Where in Halton Hills will Big Daddy take place?
The events will take place mainly in five locations, namely Downtown Georgetown (Main Street); the village of Acton (mostly in Prospect Park); Glen Williams, a historic village on the Northern edge of Georgetown; Norval, a historic village just East of Georgetown. The Bruce Trail hike will be in Limehouse, a historic village on the Escarpment between Georgetown and Acton. See the Map in the 'Big Daddy Directions' menu item.
2. Who can come?
All events are open to the public so anyone can attend, but as the name of the Festival implies, events are geared to families, and particularly to things that fathers can do with their children, or grand-fathers with children/grandchildren. Of course, moms are also welcome.
3. Will there be parking for everyone?
There is considerable parking in and around downtown Georgetown in designated parking areas. Residents of side streets are quite used to folks parking on the side streets for big events such as this. There is plenty of parking space in Acton at Prospect Park. Parking at Glen Williams and Norval is also available.
4. Will the streets be closed?
Only a few parts of streets immediately adjacent to Main Street in Georgetown will be closed. It is not anticipated that this will disrupt traffic to any significant degree.
5. How I am going to move from one event location to another?
The longest time to travel between the furthest activities is only about 15 minutes.
6. Do I need to buy tickets?
All events are free or a nominal fee (a loonie or toonie); there will be a charge for food and drinks at the booths (and of course the restaurants) in various locations.
7. What kind of activities will there be for dads?
See 'Big Daddy Event Schedule'. Activities dads will love include music, biking, boat building, drum making, talent show, Beach Party Dance, movie in the park, big trucks, art activities, food and drinks at special booths and restaurants and much more.
8. Will there be fun things to do for the kids?
The whole range of week-end events is designed to be 'Family Friendly'.
