The Town of Huntsville has announced that the annual Great Pumpkin Trail Hallowe’en event and the Portage Flyer Christmas at Muskoka Heritage Place will be postponed until 2022.

Ron Gostlin, Manager of Muskoka Heritage Place says that despite the popularity of the events Muskoka Heritage Place is unable to offer The Great Pumpkin Trail or our Portage Flyer Christmas event this year. Their success relies on the community getting together and gathering in tight spaces.

In order to run these events during the pandemic and maintain a high standard of prevention, would mean the events would need to be drastically modified in capacity and duration, and that they wouldn’t be able to provide the experience that everyone knows and loves.”
