Blind River Community Days

Blind River is a small town of just over 3,000 people.

It’s one of those quaint little towns where everybody knows everybody. For as long as I can remember, the Blind River Community Days were one of the main highlights of my summer. Starting the long weekend off with a huge parade down main street, taking notice of all the hard work locals have done on their floats. Right once the street quiets down, we would head straight to the fields of W.C. Eaket, where they would set up the biggest rides any small town kid has ever seen. Here we would enjoy the rest of the afternoon, and fill ourselves with cotton candy and hotdogs. Live music and beer tents would continue the evening with the older crowd. It may not sound like much, but the Blind River Community Days has made it’s way to the top 100 festivals in Ontario. Be sure to check it out this summer. Always held on the 2nd weekend of July.
