MarketWATCH Muskoka 14 August 2019
This is a week for shows in Muskoka. Shows of all kinds. Heavenly shows, shows of muscle, art, iron, music and Muskoka shoreline. There’s something for every eye to see.
Of the heavenly kind the Perseus Meteor Shower begins this week. We think of it as August Fireworks. There have been times when we’ve seen three meteors at once. Muscle? Huntsville is hosting Muskoka Muscle at Hidden Valley -for those who are into great feats of strength. Art is busting out all over in the form of the Dockside Festival of the Arts in Gravenhurst and Artists of the Limberlost Open House east of Huntsville. Iron (the Detroit kind) is celebrated in Baysville Saturday with the Classic Boat and Car show. After the show, swing up to Huntsville for the Annual Summer Sidewalk Sale…
Music in Huntsville with the Night of Harmony at the Algonquin Theatre, Saturday and starting Sunday for a week, Windermere’s Festival of the Arts.
Someone’s going to chose to be quiet and enjoy the scenery with a cruise from Port Carling to Bala and back aboard Peerless II. Lunch included! For that trip, Muskoka scenery will be on display.
Lots to do and see! We’ll be busy, too. Buyers are looking and we’ll be showing waterfront property. This past week some pretty sweet properties have come to market and there have been a few interesting price reductions. Take a look! Questions? That’s what we’re here for…
