Tuesdays are Terrific in Parry Sound
If you can only spend one day in Parry Sound in the summer, then I suggest picking a Tuesday.
From 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., there is something special going on, on Tuesdays.
You can start your day at the Parry Sound Summer Market, visiting the stalls of handcrafted items from a multitude of artisans, fresh produce and smoked meats, maple syrup and honey, plus baking, plants and homemade clothing. The market runs from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in Market Park Square, just behind the post office.
During the day-time, White Squall Paddling Centre brings “Blackfly II” to town – a 29 foot canoe that seats 20 people and allows you to paddle the harbor for an hour. You can pick it up at the Georgian Bay Airway dock. (If you can’t make it, they are offering an opportunity for a private day on the bay and a young persons’ Big Canoe Camp. Check out their web site for more information.)
Up next? Every Tuesday from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. it’s Cruze Night in Parry Sound! You’ll see vintage cars, muscle cars, sports bikes and their owners all gathered at the Island Queen Boat Cruise parking lot. Most of the cars are local; however sometimes other car clubs from the area join in, so there is always something new to see and learn about!
Finally, it’s “Bands on the Bay” at the Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts. This free concert series is help on the outside deck overlooking Georgian Bay. Starting at 7:00 p.m., check out the listings as the music varies from country and western, to folk and blues, to classic rock – with a little bit of everything else thrown in! This event is licensed and is held indoors if it rains.
Still looking for more to do? Why not stop off at one of the restaurants that line Bay Street for another drink, a snack or maybe dessert and coffee to finish off the night?
