Snowshoe Kawartha’s Winter Festival

January 25, 2018

More than just Snowshoe Racing

While Snowshoe Kawartha’s Winter Festival on February 3rd hosts the races that open the Snowshoe Canada Ontario Cup Series this year, there is more winter fun to be had at the festival besides snowshoe racing.

sk rentalsBruce Earp, famous for his fancy fishing lures, will be offering ice fishing demonstrations on Cameron Lake. Bruce will be available to show festival-goers the basics for setting up an ice fishing hole, answer questions about ice fishing, help people get acquainted with the sport, and hopefully catch a fish or two to show us how its done.

The biggest bike shop in Cambray – Spokes for Folks – are bringing a number of Fat Tire bikes to the Winter Festival for you to try out. These specially-designed bikes with extra large tires are made for biking in snow and ice. If you’ve ever wished you could keep cycling through the winter time, Fat Tire biking may be perfect for you!

The Snowshoe Kawartha committee has all of their fingers crossed that the weather co-operates enough for them to create two crokicurl rinks on Cameron Lake and bring the new mash-up sport to Kawartha Lakes for the first time. Crokicurl is a combination of curling and crokinole that is taking winter-loving Canadians by storm; hopefully we can all try it out on February 3rd.

Ms. Bev Jeeves, curator of the Maryboro Lodge, will be hosting a guided Historic Tour of the village of Fenelon Falls. The tour begins at 11:30 am and people interested in this tour will be kept warm on the trek through the village thanks to the use of the fantastic Dromoland Trolley.

There is also the Kids World Record Attempt for the most participants aged 15 and under in a snowshoe race. A number of kids snowshoes are available for this event. If you are interested in joining the 5k or 10k races but don’t own your own snowshoes, Wild Rock will be on site with snowshoe rentals in kids and adult sizes, as well as snowshoes for sale. Get all of the details at See you on the ice on February 3rd!
