This new Instagram page showcases the weirdest parts of Hamilton

Any Hamilton residents knows that the city has no shortage of idiosyncrasies; and now, a new Instagram page is showcasing all of the delightful weirdness of The Hammer.

The Instagram page is appropriately named Weird Hamilton, and it’s a sister account to the popular Weird Toronto social media pages.

The new page was launched just two weeks ago and has already shared a bunch of bizarre shots from within Hamilton, from strange graffiti to curious artifacts found on the streets and much more.

Some Hamilton weirdness already featured includes a shot of the endearing Zangfietspad Sing Cycle Path, an official city path that encourages cyclists to sing loud and proud while riding through; and the Hamilton Endoscopy Centre which fittingly has its main entrance – you guessed it – at the rear.

In addition, the topiary praying mantis outside of City Hall – officially named Mickey Mantis – was recently featured by the page; a new, temporary Hamilton icon that has delighted some residents and totally baffled others.

But there’s surely more where that came from, and locals can follow along on Weird Hamilton’s Instagram feed or Facebook page for further weirdness.

Additionally, anyone who has a weird image to submit can do so through Weird Hamilton on Facebook!

Check them out and give them a follow here.
