Raffi in Concert

April 6 – 1:00pm/4:00pm

First Ontario Concert Hall, 1 Summers Lane

Raffi is turning 70 this year and hopes to celebrate with families both new and old. It is hard to find anyone that doesn’t know the lyrics to ‘Baby Beluga’ or ‘Down by the Bay’, even years since they last sung it. Raffi’s concerts are always filled with talking, singing, and clapping along!

 After the Raffi concert, you can stroll a few steps to the 7th annual Vintage Marketplace Place, hosted by Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmens. Full of shopping, music and sights - with everything from furniture to children’s toys - it would be the perfect way to top off a Saturday of nostalgia!

In Spiders Alive!, visitors can explore spider anatomy and evolutionary history, learn about their signature traits — venom and silk-making — and be surprised by little-known defense mechanisms such as mimicry and noise-making. In addition to live arachnids representing approximately 17 species, the exhibition includes larger-than-life models of spiders, a climbable spider model 50 times life size, and a rare 100-million-year-old fossil of a spider in limestone.
