Road Trip Ontario: Enjoy autumn fairs and changing fall foliage this Thanksgiving
Even though the warmer weather is starting to taper off as we settle into fall, there are still plenty of opportunities to take a road trip in Ontario.
Agricultural fairs are still being held in many towns across the province. Making this time of year more ideal for exploring are the changing colours of foliage.

“There’s still a lot of leaves that are green, [but] there’s also a lot of colour that is starting to appear now in the last day or two — especially up towards Algonquin Park,” Global News chief meteorologist Anthony Farnell said on Sept. 28.
He said the park will likely see peak colours during the first week of October.
