Summer is in full swing and it has been hot here in Fenelon Falls. The sun and humidity have been perfect weather for water fun and this weekend, there is an event that helps you cool off and contribute to a good cause.
This Saturday, the Fenelon Falls Marina will be hosting the 2019 Telus Watercraft Ride for Dad. The event will start at 1 pm at Fenelon Falls Marina and will take participants on a scavenger hunt on Cameron and Sturgeon Lakes. All pleasure craft are welcome and encouraged to join in the hunt. Upon completing the hunt, families may return to the Marina by 4 pm for a chance to win great prizes and enjoy dinner together at 5 pm.
This weekend, from July 19-21 enjoy the annual Fenelon Fair at the fairgrounds, brought to you by the Fenelon Agricultural Society. This year’s fair is jam-packed with fun and features, including livestock shows, a truck and tractor pull, artist exhibits, midway exhibits, demolition derby, and more. The fair promises fun for the whole family, so bring the kids to check out the petting zoo and the children’s pedal tractor pull.
The Tourism Ambassador program launched in the summer of 2018 with only two Ambassadors. Last summer was a success and showed that there was opportunity to expand and grow the concept so this summer there are 5 Tourism Ambassadors! The TA’s are local students who bring their own experience, enthusiasm, tech smarts and hometown knowledge to the job. You will see them all around downtown Fenelon Falls, at the museum, the beach park, and the locks in their bright blue uniforms. They are also helping the Horticulture Society volunteers take care of the many beautiful gardens in the village.
