Well finally we have had 4 days in a row without rain and the days have been pleasantly warm. The rolling hills in Burk’s Falls are starting to show a bit of colour and some of the trees on Ontario Street already have lots of orange. This may be early especially for those hoping to visit close to Thanksgiving to see the spectacular display throughout the Villages of Almaguin.
Many are waiting for children to return to school and looking for the school bus schedules, school calendars and everything else we misplace over the summer months. Thank goodness for online information! The new renovations at Land of Lakes public school are nearing completion …with no time to spare and the construction on the bridge in town is also proceeding and will hopefully be completed well ahead of winter weather.
Until then the one lane over the bridge causes some delay….LOL Really! look at that traffic line up, only one car.
Be sure to visit the Burk’s Falls Fair this weekend with agricultural events such as the horse pull, displays of farm animals and prize winning entries of flowers, vegetables and baking to have a look at. Hopefully the climbing wall returns for the young and young at heart making this a good old fashion fair that young and old enjoy.
