Saturday, August 17, 2019 was a great day to enjoy all that Port Carling has to offer during the second village-wide Port Carling Midday Madness sales event.
The streets of Port Carling were bustling with visitors enjoying live music and sales at the event organized by the Muskoka Lakes Chamber of Commerce. Although the day started out with a bit of rain, the sun came out just in time for an afternoon spent strolling through Port Carling. There was plenty of fun for the whole family, with face painting, balloons, a special flyboard show, and more!
The Chamber asked businesses in and around Port Carling to contribute to a day promoting the community. Our event partners helped us place some of the best up-and-coming Muskoka artists around town. Visitors were serenaded by musicians on violins, keyboards, guitars, and a mandolin.
Clare Tapley shared his lively fiddle music by the locks and up and down Maple Street, Christina Hutt rocked out in front of Jayne’s Cottages, and Shannon Durnan serenaded shoppers at Auntie Doodie’s Antiques.
Geoff from Summer Water Sports put on a fantastic flyboard show that was a crowd favourite!
