The Friends of Murphys Point Park are excited to announce they have received confirmation of Celebrate Ontario funding in the amount of $39,600 from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
“This funding support will allow the Friends to bring some exciting new enhancements to the Heritage Mica Festival for 2012,” said Friends’ event planner Beth Peterkin.
A new dinner/theatre program will allow guests to experience life as a miner while enjoying a high-end meal in the miners’ bunkhouse…in the company of miners! Visitors to the self-guided mine trail tours will interact with many characters from 1903 – the heyday of the Silver Queen Mine – and, of course, will be able to venture underground to see miners at work. Miners’ lunches, Lally Homestead Heritage Days, local markets with heritage products for show and sale and Voyageur Canoe tours with costumed interpreters are some of the other attractions at this year’s event.
