Georgian Bay Colours Fall Fairs Foliage Fall Colours (Colors) Farmers' Markets

Thanksgiving Weekend In Georgian Bay Area

Ministry of Tourism is reporting the following leaf change percentages for a number of areas in the Province of Ontario for Thanksgiving Weekend in the Georgian Bay Area.
Visit a fall fair or a farmers' market for the fall harvest.
The Manitoulin Island region has seen the colours advance to a 70 to 80% change with dominant colours being red, orange, yellow and some brown with green for contrast. Highway 6 from South Baymouth to the junction of Highway 542 is a nice fall colour drive. There continues to be nice pockets of colour around Mindemoya.

The Barrie, Orillia, Midland and across to Wasaga Beach area is showing a 50 - 60% colour change.

Killarney Provincial Park, along the shore of Georgian Bay, reports the colour has advanced to about a 70% change, with 10-19% leafall. The Granite Ridge Trail, in the park, offers some nice fall colour viewing.

The Parry Sound and Muskoka regions are starting to see some good fall colour with a 65 to 80% change at this time with some beautiful areas of bright orange and red with 25-30% leafall.

The Collingwood area offers some ideal fall colour viewing locations especially around the Scenic Caves. The area is reporting a 70% change. The view from the suspension bridge at Scenic Caves, at the top of Blue Mountain, is always incredible but especially nice during the fall

There are several excellent lookout locations in the Beaver Valley as you approach the village of Kimberley from the south on Grey County Road 13. Continuing on Grey County 13 to Thornbury is very nice as well.
