The stars are aligning for ArtWalk 2014 (10am to 4pm). Its going to be even bigger and better this year with an expected crowd of close to 5000 people! HFA artists, musicians, dancers and helpful volunteers will be lining up on King Street (which will be closed from 8:00am to 5:00pm), and this year we are delighted that the Midland Downtown BIA merchants are celebrating with us like never before. See below for some of the great things you will be treated to on the King Street sidewalks!
Our entertainment line-up looks great and includes 5 Star County, Overtime, Fizzgig, Alicia Polan and Highway 93 and other surprises.
And don't forget the Harbourside Market filled with vendors and of course, the fun and frolicking tugboat festivities.Read more: Stars are aligning for ArtWalk 2014
It's almost here! You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown is the perfect musical to showcase our brilliant adult actors, including Pete Flood as Charlie Brown, D.J. Thorpe as Linus, Patrick Hurlbut as Schroeder, Holly Archer as Sally, Shelley Barry as Snoopy and welcoming Jocelyn Stringer from Orillia as Lucy. In response to your questions - yes this is the perfect play for you, your children and your Mom and Dad. It is cleverly crafted so no matter what your Peanuts character memories are, and whether you are an adult, a child, or a grand adult - the show will appeal to you. You will smile, laugh, and come away a better person (if you're not perfect already).
Have you wanted to see the Tony Award-winning musical THE BOOK OF MORMON? Everyone is invited to join us on the Tues. Sept. 30/14 bus trip to the Princess of Wales Theatre.
Bus will leave at 2:30 pm, arriving in Toronto in time for you to enjoy a relaxed dinner before the show at a restaurant of your choice. Bus and show tickets cost just $95 (compared to current ticket prices of show alone for $85).
If you are old enough to see this biting religious satire (warning: swearing and explicit language) then you are old enough to purchase your tickets at Askennonia Senior Centre, Midland – (705)526-7609 or
www.askennonia.com for more info.
Please pass this along on to anyone you think might be interested. Thank you.

The HFA is proud to contribute funds to support two talented dancers, Rebecca Martin, 15 and Rachel Commodore, 16, after they were selected by the Quinte Ballet School of Canada in Belleville to “eat, sleep and dream- and of course dance” ballet during the professional summer intensive program, which serves as part 2 of their audition for admission to this prestigious school.
Rachel and Rebecca danced leading roles in The School of Dance and Musicianship’s production of "Hansel & Gretel" last summer. Recently the young ladies participated in the 2014 Midland Music Festival in the Ballet Solo and Trio categories and were awarded gold for all their performances. Both girls assisted in choreographing their dances.Read more: The HFA supports dance students ...
Help Celebrate Canada’s Birthday
In appreciation of the great country in which we live, our community will again be hosting Canada Day Celebrations. The Midland Civitan Club has been asked to co-ordinate the Canada Day parade for the Midland festivities.
Everyone loves a parade; however, it takes the participation of groups and individuals to form a parade. An entry could be a decorated float or small trailer, a family walking or riding, decorated bicycles, or anyone with a unique entry of quality. Remember red is the colour of the day and enthusiasm is the key.
Please consider entering so that we may continue with this customary lead off to the Canada Day activities in the Park.Read more: Want to be part of a Parade?
