The holiday season will soon be upon us, along with the official arrival of winter. There are plenty of ways to get active and have fun in Georgina throughout the winter months.
The Festival of Lights is back on. The recent rain and warmer temperatures had left the Georgina Pioneer Village under water and it affected the operation of the Festival of Lights.
The situation has improved and the lights will now be back on. They will remain on throughout the holiday season at Pioneer Village and the Civic Centre starting at dusk until 11 p.m. each evening until Jan. 2, 2019.
The next test date for the Alert Ready Ontario public alerting system will be on November 28, 2018 at 1:55 p.m.

It is important to note that not all Ontarians will receive the test alert on their wireless device. This may occur for a variety of reasons, including device compatibility, connection to an LTE network, cell tower coverage, device software and settings.
