Giving thanks is easy, especially when you are surrounded by Southern Georgian Bay fall colours! And so much is going on too! To start with, why not take a drive to Blue Mountain Village? You’ll find free family activities, live music, a John Deere kids’ zone, scavenger hunts, hiking, biking and all kinds of fun. It’s a three-day festival of happiness, from Saturday, October 12 to Monday, October 14. Right in Wasaga Beach, celebrate Fall on Saturday, October 12 when you drop by the second annual country-themed Hootenanny at the RecPlex, 1724 Mosley St. Expect great live music, a chance to ride a mechanical bull, toss an axe, go for a wagon or pony ride or shop for local treats.
