Here’s a show not to miss, the Juno Award-winning Blues band ‘Fathead’ at the historic Dominion Hotel. Be sure to come early and enjoy the Dominion Hotel Buffet from 6-8 p.m. for only $15.99!

The Treasures and Trash Sale at Head Lake Park, which besides the ‘headlining attraction’ will also feature a Buttertart Contest, Glassblowing and a Beer Garden! Sounds like an awesomely good time!

Highlands Weather April 27 through May 10

It’s spring so yeah, it’s rainy–that’s what we all know we need. The temps look really good though–very normal highs and geez, how many more times am I going to note this(?) –higher than normal low temps. I have a problem with neither. 🙂

Also to note–the boats are back in the water in Kincardine Harbour as well as some other locations, while places like Kawagama Lake still look at least partially frozen. Diversity is good, right?

With any luck and the cooperation of our beloved Mother Nature, the rain should bring good conditions for summer–you know, lots of green and hopefully a low chance of fires in the Highlands. Fingers crossed!

The Forest Festival Press Release 2013

 

Tickets are now on sale for 2013 Forest Festivalat the Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve, Haliburton, Ontario. Outstanding, all-Canadian, performing artists in a spectacular wilderness setting: this is The Forest Festival. Buy tickets online at MadeInHaliburton.ca and get a coupon for $10 off the shipping on an order for visual arts products (order value $100 or more).

Imagine sitting in the middle of a forest, away from the lights of the city, in an amphitheater overlooking a lake listening to live music as the sun sets. One of last year’s performers was so moved by her experience on the floating stage that she realized she had tears in her eyes at one point in the show.

Or imagine listening to incredible musicians while sitting in a place of historic significance to the forest that surrounds the venue: A Historic Logging Museum.

Either venue provides the concert-goer with an unforgettable and unique experience that elevates the spirit and soothes the soul.

Consider giving tickets for this unforgettable and unique concert experience as a gift for someone special or someone who is hard to buy for: perhaps a Mother’s Day Gift or Father’s Day Gift, Anniversary Present or Birthday Present.

The 2013 Forest Festival lineup represents no fewer than 18 Juno Awards. Opening the evening of Wednesday August 14, 2013, this annual festival of concerts that links nature, and music, will run for 5 days and features eight unique musical performances. The talent assembled for the 2013 season follows in the tradition that the Forest Festival has established over the past 6 years of offering outstanding shows.
