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.

Well, there’s no denying that spring is here, though Mother Nature seems to be slightly uncertain as the temperatures flit upward in the normal range and then flutter down, slightly below normal. (This applies to both the high and low temps this week.) Though the calendar assures us that it is indeed spring, in truth we are beginning the transition between winter and spring and so will continue to experience weather that can best be described as ‘unpredictable.’

This sounds like a super-enjoyable evening. At $20 a ticket, you really can’t beat the price for a nice evening out.
Maple Syrup Harvest
Tapping Sugar Maples is a guaranteed good, if not slightly sticky time. Maple Syrup Harvest traditions continue as sap is gathered wearing snowshoes, carrying the harvest in bucket and boiling down the sap on a wood-fired evaporator.

Canadian-Pond-Hockey-Championship – Haliburton Highlands
Canadian Pond Hockey Championship, The Peppermill Anniversary Party
No matter what the weather there is always something fun to do in the Haliburton Highlands. My pick from the many great choices is the Canadian Pond Hockey Championship which is happening NOW!
My dad, who is now in his 80′s, has entertained us with stories of his younger days when he played pond hockey. It sounds like a massively fun time to attend the The Canadian National Pond Hockey Championship, an event which celebrates the grass roots of hockey. Over 230 teams (1300 players) from all over Canada will descend on the Haliburton Highlands for this two weekend event. Canada’s National Game was conceived over a century ago on frozen ponds, rivers and lakes across the country… Pond Hockey requires speed, strategy and teamwork and of course the courage to battle Mother Nature…As hosts, the Haliburton Highlands will make this a truly community event benefiting various area businesses and generate thousands of dollars for various local community groups. Join us for this celebration of grass roots hockey at its finest.
I remember when my mom and dad took me to their ‘new favourite restaurant’ –The Peppermill

Haliburton Highlands’ Weather 14- Day Forecast – Jan 26 – Feb 8
The Haliburton Highlands’ 14- Day Weather Forecast for Jan 26 through Feb 8 2013 pretty much speaks for itself. High temperature for much of this period will be on the low side–yet not extraordinarily so, as we saw this past week (thank goodness!). Overnight temperatures however, will continue in the pattern of being notably above normal some of the time, and normal-to-above most of the rest of the time. January apparently, shall go out like a lion with a snap of cold–but the extra cold is gone within a day or so–to the point of low temperatures reaching above normal high temperature numbers (see graph).
