Killarney.com 800.461.1117 escape@killarney.com SUMMER GETAWAY GUIDE Killarney The first European settlers arrived in the remote village of Killarney in 1832. Etienne Augustin Rochbear de la Morandiere, a fur trader, escaped the American occupation of Drummond Island after the war of 1812 and moved with his family to Killarney, then called Shebahonaning, Ojibwa for "safe canoe passage." Descendants of that first family, and those of other early settlers, still populate the picturesque community. They will welcome you to Killarney's waterfront shops and eateries - Pitfield's General Store, Roque's Marina, Gateway Marine and the popular ice cream parlor operated by a seventh generation relative of Ferdinand La Roque. Killarney was isolated, without road or rail access, for 130 years. The only route to the outside world was over the water or the ice to Little Current on Manitoulin Island. During that long pioneering interval, the Killarney citizens relied on marginal farming, winter logging and a burgeoning commercial fishing industry to survive. In 1962, a 68-kilometre highway was carved through the forest from Hwy. 69. In time, tourism became a principal element of the local economy. The sparkling lakes and white quartzite hills of nearby Killarney Provincial Park are a spectacular contrast to the rugged coast of Georgian Bay. The park has always been considered the Crown Jewel of Ontario parks. Here a visitor can explore scenic hiking trails or paddle where the Group of Seven artists first captured on canvas the park's celebrated vistas. Killarney Mountain Lodge is a casual resort nestled on the north shore of Georgian Bay near the historic village. Certified guides conduct daily expeditions by canoe, kayak, sail and trail in Ontario's most spectacular wilderness. Killarney is just 90 minutes from Greater Sudbury, via Hwy. 69 and the dramatic Killarney Hwy. 637. At midpoint, the highway crosses Killarney Provincial Park and is the principal access to the park. Without doubt, the drive to Killarney is, in itself, a memorable experience. - Maury East

    SUMMER GETAWAY GUIDE THE SUDBURY STAR, FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 2012 Northern Lights Festival Boreal Once again, the Northern Lights Festival Boreal is bringing the great Canadian musicians to Northern Ontario. Paul Loewenberg, now in his 13th year as artistic director, is thrilled to bring three top performers in Canada to the festival stage. "We have a really exciting festival this year with headliners Daniel Lanois on the Friday night, Joel Plaskett on Saturday night and Stephen Page on Sunday night," said Lowenberg. Lanois is not on the festival circuit, which makes catching him at the Northern Lights Festival Boreal a special occasion not to miss. "Stephen Page has been a solo artist since 2009 and this is the first public concert in Sudbury as a solo artist," said Loewenberg. Another performance to catch is the three-part harmonies of The Good Lovelies. Canadian indie-pop band, The Hidden Cameras, will be passing through. Their live performances are described as elaborate, high-energy shows, featuring go-go dancers in balaclavas, a choir, and a string section. Cecile Doo-Kingue, from Montreal, will entertain with her blues, soul and afro-folk tunes. CBC Galaxie Rising Star award winner Peter Katz will be making his debut Northern Lights Festival appearance, as well.
