With no shortage of events and activities available this summer in the area it's a great opportunity to check out new stuff so we've highlighted some of the new businesses and things to do (yes shopping is an activity) that have opened in the area recently. The Collingwood Elvis Festival takes centre stage this weekend and we wish all of the Elvis Tribute Artists a warm mycollingwood.ca welcome!
Check out the Apex Bag Jump at Blue Mountain and test your limits as you free fall from heights of up to 21 feet. Start small, and work your way up to the highest platform where you'll leap onto the air bag waiting below. With four platforms of increasing height, every jumper will have the chance to challenge themselves.
