Looking for fun things to do in Prince Edward County? Look no further. We’ve rounded up the most random and fun adventures in the County.
1. Yoga with Alpacas in Prince Edward County
You’ve heard of yoga with goats, now get ready for yoga with alpacas! This summer, you’ll have the opportunity to Namaste with alpacas at SHED Chetwyn Farms. There are currently 4 dates scheduled (July 14, 28, August 11 and 25) and the cost is just $20. And don’t worry, the alpacas won’t climb on you: “They tend to watch from afar, and only get closer when in savasana.” Does it get better than that? Bonus: one-third of each ticket purchased is donated to charity. Buy tickets here.
2. Play Paintball in a Haunted Former Hospital
Are the rumours true? PRZ Paintball is a 100,000 square foot paintball arena housed in a creepy former hospital in Picton that has long been rumoured to be haunted.
