#DoorsOpenOntario continues this fall!

TORONTO, Aug. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - Theatres, fire stations, breweries, trails and a historic lighthouse are just some of the fascinating places participating in Doors Open Ontario this fall. From August through October, 26 communities across the province will host their Doors Open Ontario events.

Hundreds of buildings and sites, many not usually open to the public, will welcome visitors on weekends free of charge.
