Culture Spotlight: Winterventions

This winter when the temperatures drop and the skies begin to darken, you can still find plenty of reasons to get outside and explore Innisfil. The Hope Tree will return to Innisfil Beach Park this December ̶ adorned with bright white lights, this tree is unlike any other, a symbol of resilience, perseverance and hope. The Hope Tree is an invitation for the community to share its hopes, dreams and wishes.

For years, wooden structures have dotted the icy landscape of Lake Simcoe. This winter, thanks to the Government of Canada Healthy Community Initiatives Grant and a local fish hut operator Gail's Hot Box Ice Huts, some of these ice huts will be unusually vibrant. Ten local artists will be decorating ice huts and you will be able to find them around Innisfil from January through March. Follow along with this exciting project.
