Welcome to Halton Hills! Today we are joining Ayslin Higgins for a tour around this charming hamlet of neighborhoods. Follow along to get the inside scoop on what to see, where to be, and how to celebrate with Halton Hills for the Ontario Culture Days festival!

We started off taking a tour at the Halton Hills Library and Cultural Centre. This cultural hub includes the Helson Gallery, the John Elliot Theatre, and the Georgetown branch of the Halton Hills Public Library.

We then had the chance to go behind-the-scenes and hear from Centre Stage at the JET artists: Tina Newlove, Jean Assamoa from Akwaba Cultural Exchange and Braden and Liv from Tragedy Ann.
