And just like that, it’s October.

It’s the first weekend of a brand new month and the weather looks like a bit of a mixed bag but who cares? There’s still a lot to do around Hamilton.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are back at home this Saturday. The Montreal Alouettes are in town to square off against the Ti-Cats. The last time these two came face-to-face at the end of August, the Ti-Cats slaughtered the Alos 27 to 10 at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium in Montreal. Let’s see if our boys in gold and black can keep up the momentum. Kick off is 4 p.m. More information and tickets can be found on the team’s website.

2. OktoberWest

Visit Westdale Village this weekend to shop the artisan market, hear some live music or perhaps eat some delicious food and watch the event unfold from one of the many patios in area. There is also a childrens art contest (sponsored by Mixed Media and KingWest Books) and entries will be on display in the village all October. Concerts Friday and Saturday night at 9pm will be held at the Westdale Cinema and will feature performances by Tom Wilson and Sean Jones.
