Happy Labour Day

Well, folks, Labour Day weekend is coming up (Sept. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th), which makes it the last long weekend before the cold, wet, and unpleasant weather starts to hit. To make the most of the long weekend, why not jump in your Toyota and head out of town for a few days of fun, adventure, or just a little relaxation? You don’t have to go far to get away from it all.


Here are a few ideas on how you can enjoy your Labour Day long weekend:

Crooked River Provincial Park

Crooked River Provincial Park

Less than an hour’s drive away is Crooked River Provincial Park, a well-known camping destination in the area. It closes in mid-September, so this is your last chance to enjoy a weekend of camping, hiking, and swimming if you can brave the water temperature. Founded in 1965, Crooked River Provincial Park has 65 campsites, so don’t delay and look into booking your site before they’re all gone.


Celebrate the Mighty Potato

If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key and closer to home, the Potato Festival takes place Sept. 1st and 2nd. It’s a fun, unique event that honours the potato - a staple in just about everyone’s diet. Take your Toyota Rav4 or 4Runner and load up on all sorts of spuds. Of course, you’ll be able to try some delectable potato-based treats and enjoy music and other entertainment. Don’t be a couch potato and check out all the details about the Potato Festival for yourself.

Tundra in tow

Float Your Boat

If you own or have access to a boat, hook it up to your Toyota Tacoma or your big ole' Toyota Tundra and hit the water. Enjoy the weather while it lasts and make the most of the gorgeous scenery of Northern BC. Don’t have access to a boat? There are plenty of businesses in Prince George that rent them, and there is no lack of options on lakes and rivers to have some safe aquatic fun.

It doesn’t really matter what you do for the Labour Day long weekend as long as you take some time to relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family. We’d love to hear what you have in-store for your long weekend; if you’d like to share, post your story on our Facebook page.
