Folks living in Barrie, Orillia, along Georgian Bay or in the Muskokas (and those visiting)love festivals, be it spring, summer, fall or winter. Throughout
the year, over 100 different festivals and annual events are put on by various local groups.
There's no better way to enjoy yourself than to take in a festival.
