Muskoka Lakes Christmas Market
With over 40 unique and curated vendors, the Muskoka Lakes Christmas Market is at the Port Carling Community Centre and Port Carling Legion on November 2. Both buildings, which are across the road from each other, are full of fantastic finds and will be a great place to check off some of your list for Christmas!

Explore Beautiful Waterfalls
For those who like to go with the flow, here’s a list of some of our favourite waterfalls spots you should definitely go chasing! Although it is a fun way to spend an afternoon, getting great pictures and great recreation, it is important to note the danger that exists near waterfalls. Always be attentive and careful near waterfalls, as rocks can be slippery and a fall could be fatal.
