I just received my TTT newsletter for 2016 and unfortunately I can’t attend this year, but I certainly recommend this festival.   Norris Point and Woody Point are breathtaking!

This festival provides everything I love…hiking, entertainment, meeting new people and exploring new places. People come from all over Canada and the United States for this event. Trails Tales Tunes May 20-29 2016  what an adventure it will be!
