Missing all that Olympic excitement? Fear not. Some exciting competition in the Southern Georgian Bay area and beyond is afoot right now. The Ontario Winter Games, centred in Orillia from March 1 to 4, offer all kinds of spectator sports to choose from. Nearby Blue Mountain has been hosting downhill skiing and snowboarding. You’ll find spellbinding exhibitions of talent across a wide region from fencing and figure skating to curling and hockey. If you find yourself in Orillia today and tomorrow, make sure to sample some of the fun at another big event, the Orillia Winter Carnival. Don’t miss the Polar Bear dip on Saturday!
