365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo is brought to you by Keith Marshall. Most people think picnic is an Indian word but it’s actually a French word from way back in the in the middle ages relating to an elegant meal eaten out-of-doors usually connected with a short break from hunting. Picnicking became popular after the French Revolution when the parks were open to public for the first time. Picnicking was once a very fashionable thing to do. Wear a fancy hat. It’s going to be hot.
