Lay's Potato Chips - Foreign Flavors
Make sure you stop at Becker's (much like 7-11) and try a bag of Lay's Ketchup or Dill Pickle flavored chips. While there are American immitations, Lay's cannot be beat! I still wonder why they do not have these flavors available in the USA...
DISTRICT COURT AND GAOL (JAIL)
When the British withdrew from Detroit in 1796, they transferred the courts of the Western District to Sandwich (Windsor). A brick court house and Gaol, completed by 1820, served until 1856 when the present building was constructed. Designed in the Renaissance Revival style by Albert H. Jordan of Detroit, it was built by stonemason Alexander Mackenzie, who later became Canada's second Prime Minister.
It housed the Essex County Courts until 1963. Renamed Mackenzie Hall, the restored building opened in 1985 as a community and arts centre.
Huge Annual Fireworks
Every summer, the cities of Windsor and Detroit participate in the two-week-long Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival that culminates in a huge fireworks display to celebrate Canada Day and American Independence Day. This fireworks display is considered among the largest in the world. It is held the Wednesday before Canada Day, on the Detroit River between Detroit's Renaissance Center and Windsor's Festival Plaza. This event attracts over a million spectators to Windsor's riverfront parks.
