All the details are included here on the Minden Festival of Trees 2011. If you have questions beyond what is provided (below), there’s a phone contact as well (scroll to the very bottom). This looks like a great all-ages outing.

Who wouldn’t want to meet Mrs. Claus at her ‘sweet treat cafe’ on Saturday?

I’d love it if someone took photos and shared them!

We go each year because it’s local and it’s a fun outside thing to do.

Check out these –as well as some new 2011 shots of the family.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada! #haliburtonhighlands #canadianthanksgiving

I tried checking for historical accuracy about “who” invented Thanksgiving in North America and it really seems to come down to semantics. One source took issue that Martin Frobisher ate salted meat, biscuits and peas and therefore it wasn’t truly a “harvest” but he and his crew were thankful. The fact is that Thanksgiving as a celebration of the season’s bountiful harvest had been going on in Europe for centuries before either Frobisher (see below) or the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth rock and partied with the local people.

Have a great Holiday!

Here’s a little blurb about how Canadian Thanksgiving came about:

Hey everyone!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I would so love to be able to visit right now. The colours must be spectacular. One day…

Anyway, Roger took these shots.* He is so much more talented than I with the scenic ones.

*Except the ones of Obi on our raft.

If you’d like a full size copy or copies email me–I’ll zip them up and send them to you.
