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.

Nov 29

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.

Ontario will issue one test message to be distributed over television, radio and to compatible wireless devices. 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.

With all of the recent rain and warmer temperatures, the Georgina Pioneer Village is under water and it has affected the operation of the Festival of Lights. 

It will have a temporary disruption and will not be operating until further notice.  

We apologize for this temporary disruption and will advise once the Festival of Lights is on again.

Town staff noted activity on the Maple Lake Estates site on the afternoon of November 8th.  The Town has issued a stop work order and instructed our Solicitor to review and contact the property owner’s Solicitor regarding this matter. The Town has also been in contact with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority regarding the Section 28 permit issued to the property owner and the current activities.

Winter weather has arrived in the Town of Georgina, reminding us of our shared role in keeping roads and walkways clear.

Did you know? The Town is responsible for clearing 333 kilometres of roads, 140 kilometres of sidewalks, 25 parking lots and 31 crosswalks.

No parking – As per the Traffic and Parking By-law, parking is not permitted on most streets from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., Nov. 15 through April 15. This assists the Town so it can completely clear streets of snow and so large emergency vehicles can access all routes.
