When people think of Southern Georgian Bay, they often think of downhill skiing, skating, or ice fishing — but we know that the great outdoors may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and there are lots of terrific indoor activities to enjoy this winter.
At Locations North, we appreciate the great indoors and are proud to highlight some wonderful local, indoor activities and events taking place in our region this winter.

The Blumination Dream Trail is a free, family-friendly event consists of a magical, one-kilometre winter stroll within the Village, around the Mill Pond, and features a variety of interactive and entrancing light installations.
