The Kawarthas in 2023
2023 was an eventful year in the Kawarthas—the first year that the COVID-19 pandemic was no longer an everyday concern for most people. This year, large public events went ahead, without much concern for social distancing or special health and safety procedures. At long last, traffic resumed passing over Bobcaygeon’s swing bridge, making it a lot easier to get from Rokeby to the main island. Fenelon Falls welcomed the Voyageur Canoe Brigade and enjoyed rocking performances of the Million Dollar Quartet at the Grove Theatre. Maryboro Lodge celebrated its 60th anniversary, with its busiest year to date, and published its first documentary as George Jackett remembered digging the Fenelon Lock. Flash flooding hit Lindsay in September. Kawartha Settlers Villages’ events and Fenelon Falls’ Santa Day were popular as always. … We hope you enjoy these favourite pictures from the Kawarthas in 2023.
