In addition to prizes, activities and entertainment, Willoughby DAYZ is also a great way to discover the organizations and businesses at work in the local neighbourhood.

Kid-friendly fun: Families will find plenty of entertaining options at Willoughby DAYZ, including a petting zoo, games and activities, balloon arts and face-painting.

Community connections: As an event rooted in the local neighbourhood, you’ll also be able to connect with a variety of associations and organizations hard at work on your own community.

Passport to prizes: Pick up your Willoughby DAYZ passport (*one per family) and stop by participating businesses to get your pages stamped, then enter to win one of the fantastic prize baskets valued at between $100 and $500. With about 20 prize packages in all, filled with items from mall retailers, the total prize value is around $2,000!!
