Visiting Northern Ontario
The snow has melted, temperatures are on the rise, and the people of northern Ontario are heading outside to celebrate spring and summer. This season, adventures await in prime examples of the Great Outdoors like Algonquin Provincial Park, and communities from Huntsville to Thunder Bay to Dryden welcome travelers with countless special events, festivals, and activities for the whole family.
The sky above Thunder Bay fills with color on June 5th. That's when the 2016 Thunder Bay Kite Festival brings tons of games, workshops, kite flying demonstrations, live music, and more to Chippewa Park on the shores of Lake Superior. The high-flying fun goes from noon to 4 p.m.
To the north in Sioux Lookout, it's another colorful celebration – but this one's all about the blue.
