DescriptionThis Lake Huron town may be best known for its Scottish bagpipe band parade and concert, traditionally held Saturday nights from late June through Labour Day. Locals and visitors alike join the bagpipe parade as it proceeds down Queen Street, returning to the Victoria Park gazebo where the concert takes place. Also popular are the Sunday evening sing-alongs in Dunsmoor Park, early July through Labour Day weekend; Wednesday evening concerts are for those more inclined to merely listen and are offered in July and August.
For the recreation-minded, hiking, fishing, skating and cross-country skiing are available, and golf can be played at four nearby courses. Local produce can be checked out at Market in the Park, held Mondays in Victoria Park from Victoria Day through Labour Day.
Cultural amenities include year-round performances by two theater companies, with all plays staged at the Kincardine Arts Centre, 707 Queen St. Professional performances by the Bluewater Summer Playhouse take place late June through August; phone (519) 396-5722 or (877) 396-5722.
