Enjoy free parking all weekend and be sure to check out the view of the Elora Gorge, literally steps away with one of the most spectacular views on the David Street Bridge. Tour the town and find a quiet place to read. Grab a pint or a bite to eat, because reading on an empty stomach is just not wise. Or shop some more, because why stop now? Right? Right.
