Curiosity Cruiser visits Orangeville

We were looking forward to tapping our feet to some great music over the weekend as the Curiosity Cruiser drove up Highway 10 and entered Orangeville.

And as we expected, Orangeville delivered. The annual Blues and Jazz Festival was filled with great music, eats and friendly people. Kids and adults alike were having a fun time guessing our curious objects. The Curiosity Corner was overflowing with questions by the end of the second day and our bellies were full with delicious food. We ate our hearts out at Pia’s on Broadway and enjoyed some wings and wraps from many stalls at the festivals.

Did you know there are 58 outdoor wooden sculptures in Orangeville? These sculptures are of people, animals and other objects too! The Curiosity Crew had a fun time posing next to some of them this weekend. Check out the photos on twitter at @OntarioResearch!

We had a great weekend in Orangeville and would love to come back and explore some more of the town and its trails. But for now, we’re getting ready to head to Peterborough for their farmer’s market this Wednesday!
