Where To Take Mom On Mother’s Day

If you’re in Ontario and looking for a place to take your mom on Mother’s Day, there are several options across the province that hosts Ontario online casinos. The website CleverCanadian recommends the Canadian Tulip Festival, which runs from May 10-20 at Commissioners Park in Ottawa. The festival’s website also includes a list of restaurants in the area where you can treat her to brunch or dinner for mom’s day.

Upper Canada Village, one of the nation’s biggest living-history attractions, is welcoming all mothers with free admission on Mother’s Day. The village, in Morrisburg along the St. Lawrence River, lets visitors experience how rural English Canadian settlers lived in the area more than 150 years ago. It contains more than 40 buildings, including mills and workshops.

In Toronto, of interest for Ontario sports betting, the Blue Jays will be home at Rogers Centre on May 12, playing the Minnesota Twins. The team will have several activities across the stadium for mom and the kids to take part in before and during the game.

Speaking of the Jays, they have struggled some to start the season, but oddsmakers at Pinnacle Ontario Sportsbook still have them listed at +2500 to win the World Series this season.
