Bala Ontario Visited
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
The first time I visited the Village of Bala was when I was a teenager, looking for fun!
I had been told that Bala was where the “action – girls” was!
To be honest, I was very shy and didn’t have the nerve to find the “action“.
However, it had been a beautiful trip from my parent’s cottage on Lake of Bays, and I void to check out Bala later.
Later turned out to be several years later.
That’s when Scoop (Judi) and I visited Bala when our friends Ross and Cathy and their daughter, Erin.
We were there to experience the Bala Cranberry Festival.
We had such a great time, that we decide to visit it again (several times).
Bala, as you may know, is located in the “heart” of the Muskoka Region.
Bala offers a lot to visitors.
There is, as I mentioned, the Bala Cranberry Festival, which takes place in the fall.
Then, there’s the well-known Bala Falls, the source of the Moon River.
Judi and I enjoyed experiencing the falls…
… and taking lots of photos!
Bala is a great place to visit and to spend some family time!
But, don’t go looking for adventure (like I did as a teenager), unless you are BOLD and ADVENTURESOME and then you will definitely find it in Bala!
