While you’re making your summer plans this is a great time to buy your tickets for the Collingwood Elvis Festival.  One of my favourite places during the Festival is The Olde Town Terrace, the largest tented venue during the Festival.  Ray and Sandie have lined up some great entertainment including Best of the FEST, The Elvis Evolution Show Ticket, the Second Annual Gospel Brunch and the Last Hurrah Party.  Tickets are on sale now and going fast so get yours today.

Plunge! Aquatic Centre is now offering babysitting so you and your mate can drop off the little munchkins for some great supervised babysitting with organized activities while the two of you enjoy some time at one of the great restaurants in the Blue Mountain Village or going for a hike or going down the Ridge Runner.

The Downtown Collingwood Farmers Market is now open for the rest of the summer up until Thanksgiving Weekend. Curries Farm Market at the corner of 10th Line and the 6th Street extension opened on May 20th for the season. It’s a family business spanning three generations. Edgar and Barbara Currie started the market in 1957, and is now owned and operated by Chris Currie, grandson of Edgar Currie, and his wife Candice.

What better time to give biking to work a try? June is Bike Month throughout Canada with many activities planned to encourage all of us to get on our bikes. In Collingwood, one of those activities is Bike to Work Week. Collingwood area residents are encouraged to ride their bikes to work during the week of June 6th to 12th to promote a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative to motorized vehicles.

Essence in Motion - Thai Massage
Essence in Motion moved to Collingwood in early 2010 offering Thai Massage. Different from other styles of massage offered locally; Thai Massage is performed on a large floor mat with the client wearing loose, comfortable clothing. A slow and rhythmic experience often referred to as 'lazy man's yoga'. Hands, elbows, thumbs, knees, legs and feet are used to move clients into a series of yoga-like stretches, each Thai Massage posture flows into the next leaving you relaxed and energized. This ancient healing therapy compliments the Collingwood lifestyle by helping you to refresh and renew between adventures.
