September 2017: Things to do with kids in Thunder Bay

Fall brings back-to-school, beautiful colours, cooler temps—and lots of fun activities for Thunder Bay families. Here’s what’s on this month, from world-class baseball to fall fairs.

September 1-10

U-18 Baseball World Cup 2017, Port Arthur Stadium and Baseball Central

Batter up! For 10 days, the world’s best young baseball players from Canada, Cuba, the US, Japan, Mexico and more will be playing 50 games in Thunder Bay at the U-18 Baseball World Cup. Day passes for kids range from $8 to $20 and kids under 2 are free.

September 1, 22

Movie Nights on the Waterfront, Marina Park

The nights are getting darker so the movies start a little earlier! Cozy up for a free outdoor viewing of The Fate of the Furious (Sept. 1) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Sept. 20). Rogue One is associated with ThunderCon so expect some way-cool costumes in the crowd.

September 3-4

Hymers Fall Fair, Hymers Fairgrounds

For 105 years, families have been enjoying that country spirit at Hymers Fall Fair, with horse displays, prize-winning produce and animals, contests, artisans, a farmers market and lots of yummy food.

September 8-9

Rural Heritage Days, Hwy 130 and Piper Drive

The Slate River Plowing Match is at the heart of this event, featuring a tractor parade and a “rodeo” to demonstrate tractor skills—great for little ones who like farm equipment!

September 16

Open Streets Thunder Bay, Simpson Street and Victoria Avenue

Open Streets Thunder Bay heads to Fort William for a new event, replacing the Fort William Fall Street Festival this year. Stroll the blocked-off streets while you munch, shop and play.

September 23-24

ThunderCon, Valhalla Inn

Break out the Wonder Woman, Batman and Rey costumes and head to TBay’s convention for self-described geeks, nerds and fans. You can meet characters, play board games, get autographs, shop at Diagon Alley, enter contests, watch demos and more.

September 29- October 1

Culture Days, various locations

Culture Days are happening across Canada this weekend, and in TBay you can learn Ukrainian dance, try drumming at a traditional Indigenous drumming circle, visit the third Open Streets event (Court Street from John to Boulevard Lake) and more.

Don’t miss out on the fun! Like us on Facebook to see posts from throughout the month.
