It draws locals, cottagers and tourists to Orillia’s downtown streets to boost the local economy and instill a sense of civic pride.

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.

Founded in 1906, the Washago Community Centre has been a community meeting place for over 100 years. In 1956 a foundation was dug to accommodate the building of a new hall. This building lasted until 2007 at which time the old building was demolished to make way for a new existing structure that opened its doors at that time. Over the years family names such as Hepinstall, Agnew, Ellis, Carson and Brooks have been vitally involved in the maintenance and day-to-day running of the centre. Today, the Washago Community centre is pleased to be as involved, if not more so than at any other time in its history.
