It’s easy to figure out what to do with yourself and your cute little darlings in the winter or summer in Southern Georgian Bay. The question is... what do you do when it’s shoulder season and raining? Well we’ve done some research for you and put it all together in our Rainy Day Guide. There is something for everyone and you just might be inspired to try something new.
Our Double Dollars Marketplace has started off as a huge success. Make sure you check the Double Dollars Marketplace open every Wednesday at 10am sharp. Just look for the Double Dollars icon on our home page and you can check out what is available in advance every week. You can buy gift certificates from area restaurants, retail stores and attractions for half price. This is a fantastic way to double your Christmas shopping dollars... sounds crazy and I hate to think about it... but Christmas is a mere 9 weeks away. Yikes.

How smart do you think you are? Well, now it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Register to take part in an event that is tremendous fun! Last year we were invited to attend the Collingwood Chamber of Commerce Trivia Challenge. We learned two important things... it was way more fun than we thought it would be. It was a riot. However, I was quite surprised to find out that we were not as smart as we thought we were. It sounded simple enough... a bunch of multiple choice questions…surely we could get the right answer every time... or at least most of the time... ha! For only $25 this is a very entertaining evening. Boston Pizza is hosting the event this year on November 7th... a great venue... so don’t miss out... call the Chamber of Commerce today and register with Trish or Marie at 445.0221. You don’t have to be a Chamber member to participate.
