With the blanket of snow covering the province and temperatures as low as -25°C, it might not feel like winter will ever end. However there is some light at the end of the tunnel. When tickets to lavender field festivals start springing up you know that summer in on the brain. And if you're too deep in your winter blues to get excited about summer events then at least cheer up knowing that the groundhogs did predict an early start to spring this year after all. 

For anywho who is ready to start thinking about warmer days and spending time outside among the flower fields, there's something you'll want to check out. The 9th annual NEOB Lavender Festival in Niagara On The Lake has already released tickets for their July 7th & 8th event. Based on how the years previous looked - you won't want to miss out on maybe one of the most IG worthy festivals of the year.
