Virgil-Niagara on the Lake Fireworks
More than 40 years ago, a group of neighbours in Virgil got together to organize fireworks for Victoria Day, as still occurs today in many neighbourhoods. But these families went on step further, providing pony rides for the kids. That celebration on the grounds of the Virgil Public School grew to what has become the Virgil Stampede, with something new added each year — this year, better than ever. See Virgil for Fireworks
