This annual Community Event is a great alternative to having your children go door to door through busy streets in traffic, in the dark. Held in the Pioneer Village within the gates of Muskoka Heritage Place, this traffic free and youngster driven Hallowe’en event proves as much of a social event for the parents as it is for the kids.
What to Expect – At our main admissions at 88 Brunel Rd. Huntsville you will be given a site map to assist you in your adventure. Individuals or businesses sponsor our pioneer buildings by decorating the doorways and or outside areas in a theme, then dress in costume and sheell out the candy Muskoka Heritage Place provides. The way to the buildings is lit with moonlights but if you have very young ones and wish to keep the experience even lighter, you might consider joining us early, before 6:30 p.m. nightfall. Best Decorated House – Mayor Scott Aitchison will judge and select the winner of the “Best Decorated House”.

Having raised $63,000 in a collective 90 days of crowd-funding, it’s obvious that KCLR’s supporters believe in the band’s commitment to creating fresh and soul clapping music while inspiring both budding new musicians and old school music lovers alike. KCLR’s current mission is to spread this passion around the world. This summer, the KCLR Go West tour brought the band’s unique blend of funk, jazz, rock and urban elements to new crowds from Edmonton to Los Angeles.
On his first solo full-length album, compass, singer/songwriter Conor Gains proves himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all genres. Gains’ label debut marks the follow-up to the self-released Sophomore album “Run Away With the Night”, which sparked interest in the young artist’s music. In 2016 Gains’ album closing song “Leave It On the Line” won the cobalt prize at the Maple Blues Awards. This national prize is designed to highlight innovation and creativity in songwriting. This is the impression one gets while listening to the Conor Gains band. The deep respect of roots, jazz and blues music paired with the soulful, adventurous exploration of contemporary music gives Gains’ songs an air of familiarity while listening to something completely unique and transcendental.
Steve Marriner: is a dynamic and powerful performer. His incorporation of various styles of blues, roots and soul come together to form an original sound that is both deep and genuine.
Chris Caddell: Who would’ve thought that Belleville, Ontario could produce a musician with the southern vibe and bluesy reverence of a Stevie Ray Vaughan or Doyle Bramhall II?
Jesse O’Brien: played his first gig, with his father, at the tender age of 12. A few years later, Dad introduced Jesse to Ronnie Hawkins, and the teenager launched into a much-lauded career as a keyboardist. He was inspired by the late, great Buffalo-area keyman Stan Szelest (one-time member of The Band), whose ability to play any style of music was something O’Brien took to be a prerequisite for a music career. “You have to play everything to get by,” he says. “Half the time when you show up at a studio, you don’t even know if you’re walking into a country session, a jazz session, or a pop session.”
