spring seasonal adventures

An early spring #onthe42 sees new life and growth brought into the region. Not only do visitors get a chance to witness the first new blooms of the season, but Leamington is also directly in the migratory path of dozens of bird species. Beginning in the first week of May, through to the end of May, Point Pelee National Park features the Festival of Birds- which helps transform our community into a birders paradise.

Warm weather and early melting snow gives you the opportunity to dust off your bike or motorcycle and cruise along our motorcycling route or many community trails. Along your way, stop at any of our roadside fruit and vegetable stands and pick up fresh seasonal produce grown right here in Leamington.

After the May long weekend, make a point to visit the famous "Big Tomato", Leamington's Tourist Information Booth, located next to the Arts Centre at 72 Talbot St. W The booth is staffed with knowledgeable volunteers and is managed by the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce.

Festival of Birds

Located at the crossroads of major migration routes, Point Pelee National Park welcomes thousands of birds and birdwatchers alike each spring. Dedicated to the protection and presentation of this unique part of Canada, Point Pelee National Park is home to a diversity of species seen few other places in the country. 

The best time to see the greatest diversity of songbirds is the first three weeks of May. Forty-two (42) of the 55 regularly occurring warbler species in North America have been recorded at Point Pelee.
