Family Friendly Sensational Elora

October 3-12

Sensational Elora is chock full of events that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Here is a small sample.


If you’ve seen the Amazing Race on television, you have some idea about the challenges set out for teams. Not as onerous as the televised version but just challenging enough, ours will be much more family-friendly and loads of fun. Each challenge will test your team’s mettle in exploring one of the senses. Points will be awarded for each challenge and the Grand Prize Winner will be the team with the most points.
Teams are made up of four people with the minimum age set at twelve. Each team must contain at least one adult.
To enter the Sensational Race, please visit our web site at www.sensationalelora.com and check us out under “Contests”
Date: Sunday, October 4th
Time: 1:00 PM

Grinder Productions Presents...

By Jove is one version of an ancient legend about the rewards of sharing.The great god Jove, having given the people wealth, plenty and fruitful crops, decides to test their generosity.
