At inRcity Ball they are creating a new faster, positionless game of basketball. With a 3 on 3 format it allows players to develop more creative individual skills and puts the ball in each player’s hands more often. Having no coaches or positions takes the pressure away from the players and allows freedom to try some things that are usually only seen in the driveway and lots of fun. To go along with their play style, they have also downsized the courts to 50 feet long and 30 feet wide. At inRcity, they feel that this will improve dribbling and passing skills along with speed and quicker reactions as the defense will have easier recovery and contest their opponents faster. To add on to the smaller courts they also have lowered the nets! The nets are adjustable from 7 feet to 10 feet with full 72 inch glass backboards! This will allow younger/smaller players to develop a proper shooting form and make it easier to score! Have fun and enjoy the game of basketball with some friends and meet new people and players along the way! Stay active and have fun playing basketball with no pressure to play a perfect […]

Streets Alive! is an annual outdoor art event in downtown Orillia open to the public all summer long. It draws locals, cottagers and tourists to Orillia’s downtown streets to boost the local economy and instill a sense of civic pride. Streets Alive! started in 2009 as an offshoot of the successful Orillia Festival of Banners. This first Streets Alive! event featured jury-selected artists transforming large-scale vinyl banners with their art live on the street. The Peter Street art block was buzzing with music, performance art and hands-on activity. The appeal of the event was particularly evident on the second day, as over 400 people lined up in the rain to vote for their favourite banners. The top four artists earned substantial People’s Choice cash prizes, and their banners joined the Festival of Banners collection for prominent display in Orillia. The project has grown each year, with more and more artists vying to get involved and word of our incredible artistic endeavours spreading farther afield. 2010 featured giant guitars. The next year brought wrought-iron sailboats with lexan sails as the artists’ canvas. 2012 celebrated Stephen Leacock, with sculptures modelled on his reading chair at his Orillia summer home. 2013 was a love letter to art; templates spanned the alphabet, with artists […]

Discovery Harbour traces its roots back to the original British naval and military base in Penetanguishene, built to safeguard access to Upper Canada after the War of 1812. “His Majesty’s Naval Establishment on Lake Huron”, (as it was first called) kept ships prepared to supply British posts to the northwest. By 1820, it was home to over 70 people, including sailors, officers, shipwrights, and soldiers. Five large ships, 15 smaller vessels, and numerous workshops and dwellings were built. In 1828, a British garrison on Drummond Island was relocated to Penetanguishene. By 1834, Canada was defended exclusively by these forces. An impressive stone Officers’ Quarters was built in 1845. The military occupied the site until 1856.

Marc Degagne is a master carver. He creates unique wildlife carvings in beautiful woods. It’s the natural beauty of wood that inspires him. The woods that he uses to create his pieces, are indigenous to this area. He carves on reclaimed woods, burls and knolls, much of which he purchase from a local arborist. The stones and driftwood used for bases are collected from the shores of nearby lakes. Many other bases are branches and pieces from the forest that surrounds us.
