Huntsville’s downtown core is blocked off to drivers on Saturday for the Muskoka Maple Festival. The event starts at 9:00am with a Sap Run for Kids, a new event this year where youngsters aged three to 13 can take part in the 500m or 1km fun run.

Roads affected by the Fun Run include:

  • West Street North, from Queen Street to North Street
  • Queen Street at West Street North
  • North Street from West Street North to King Street
  • King Crescent from North Street to West Street North

They will be closed for an hour Saturday morning, from 8:30 to 9:30.

Additional roads closed include Main Street East from Brunel Road to Centre Street, West Street South from Main Street to High Street, as well as King Street from Main Street to Queen Street. Those are shut down for the festival, between 7:00am and 6:00pm.

The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce says the event will be fun for the whole family. The schedule includes an all-day pancake breakfast, a wildlife caller, live music, street buskers and a drum circle. So far it’s looking like the weather will hold out, Environment Canada is calling for sunny skies and a high of nine degrees.
