Whether you have 3 hours or 30 minutes, you can make the most of the fabulous fall colours we enjoy in Parry Sound.
Did you know that after Thanksgiving Day, the Island Queen’s horn won’t be blowing at 1:00 p.m.? It is always an adjustment for those of us living in Parry Sound not to hear the Island Queen’s horn blast as she pulls away from the Town Dock on her last cruise of the year.
Original started as a water taxi business, the Anderson family realized that more of their passengers were on the boat to see the sights, rather than to get from place to place on Georgian Bay. So, in the 1970’s they decided to start the tours – and have been running every since.
As the radio commercial says “water on the water, beer on the pier!” But we will admit nothing goes better with sitting by the lake than beer. So, this weekend we have not one, but TWO events featuring been this week in Parry Sound – both on October 4th.
The 3rd Annual Brew Ha-Ha is an event to raise funds for Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, which works with local communities to protect the biodiversity of the Biosphere and help with sustainable development through education and public outreach.
Being held at the Seguin Valley Golf Club, your $50 provides a full evening of dinner, comedy, music and of course, craft beer!
It’s a busy week in Parry Sound this week. George Canyon is appearing at the Stockey Centre on Tuesday September 23; and on Saturday, 144 ladies will play in the “Support the Girls Breast Cancer (Golf) Tournament”, back for its 12th year to help raise money for the West Parry Sound Health Centre. This year, the funds raised will help buy a new ultrasound machine.
Two great and complimentary events are also occurring in Parry Sound this weekend. Doors Open Parry Sound will be on September 27 and look back at Parry Sound in 1914 - commemorating World War I and featuring Tom Thomson’s visit to the area that summer.
From educational sites, like the Parry Sound High School, Library, Museum and Canadore College to buildings that embrace the abundance of water –Sail Parry
While other parts of Canada (and even northwestern Ontario) have experienced their first snowfalls, Parry Sound is still waiting for those gorgeous fall colours to make their presence known. Most of the activities that people equate with the summer – mainly water based – continue. With the water of Georgian Bay and lakes warmer than the air, it is a good way to extend the summer until the calendar says it is over!
