On the Bruce we love snow believe me, with 2400 km of some of the best snowmobile trails in the province and an abundance of outdoor fun for everyone to participate in, how could we not. The Bruce offers, indoor and outdoor arenas for skating, groomed cross country trails, cool places to break new trail for snowshoeing, lots of snow for making snowpeople and snow angels, toboggan hills and so much more.

BUT this time of year we get pretty excited because our World Famous Bruce Peninsula Mascot Wiarton Willie is about to come out of his home and give us all his famous prediction… That’s right the Wiarton Willie Festival is just around the corner.
