Mini Monthly Round-Up | November
Happy November friends!
As clocks fall back and days shorten, we bid an early adieu to our dear friend the sun. During these long and crisp Canadian nights, our journey of building a miniature Canada attraction is shining brighter than ever.
With our FrontFundr small investor campaign complete, the team has been putting much of their focus into the design of our Niagara destination and our aspiration to build a mesmerizing miniature Horseshoe Falls - we're feeling lucky about this one.
For this month's news, we're featuring a spotlight on one of our own miniature Canada builders, a mini mention about us in the big world and an article about the fascination of miniaturizing our modern world.
And as you may have been thinking it, we feel the need to mention location, location location! We’re making good progress on securing our final home so we can create that truly magical journey for you all to experience. The world we're building is like the perfect poutine - our final home is the golden bed of crispy fries, our miniature destinations are the silky gravy, and those salty tender cheese curds, that’s the team building it all. Stay tuned!
Grab a little snack and read up below for more on all this news!
