Published September 24, 2021 at 9:29 am
The weekend is here again and it’s the final one of September so we should probably make this one count.
Hamilton’s weather forecast isn’t looking too promising with an 80 per cent chance of showers on Saturday but Sunday looks a little more lovely but things will feel a little cooler all weekend long.
A little bit of bad weather, however, shouldn’t keep one from seeing and doing all the things Hamilton has to offer on the weekends.
To help you narrow down what your options are, here are 5 things to do in Hamilton this weekend (Sept. 24 to 26).
Guess who's back?
