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.
Yes, that’s right, Hamilton now has its own Zangfietspad*.

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