The forth annual Explore the Shore takes place this weekend along historic County Road 50 – Canada’s Southernmost drive.

Thirty-six businesses, recreational facilities and community groups participating on the weekend including four new participants this year: Drexler Diving Systems sharing the history of shipwrecks that lie just off our shore, The Garden Gallery with artists and musicians demonstrating their skill and talents on site, J.L. Frost Photography giving tours of the darkroom and Paglione Estate Winery with a Bocci Ball Tournament.

All participants have planned a full slate of activities and local products, including “great rate” golf, sailing, live entertainment, wine tastings, fresh produce, homemade pies, candles, church dinners, local root beer, fresh blueberries, vineyard and orchard tours, art, gift shops and florals. New activities this year are geo-caching along the route, a bicycle show and a Passenger Pigeon exhibit. There will be food specials all along the route, including ice cream cones, wood-fired pizza, BBQs and picnic lunches.

The 2014 theme is County Road 50, Always Changing, an invitation to learn the history of the community and people. To aid the visitor, they will have a Scavenger Hunt based on this theme with information at each participating location. Collect the answers and you will be eligible to enter a prize draw.

More information can be found on the Windsor-Essex Summer Festival guide.
