Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
The new Kiwanis Sk8 & Bike Park for children and youth is located at the Julie McArthur Regional Recreation Centre. It's FREE of charge and is accessible to all people. The recreation centre next door offers twin ice pads and also houses the Owen Sound and Area YMCA, with fitness facilities and indoor pools.
