King Township Municipal Centre underway

 Photos by Barry Wallace
A colourful billboard (above) has been erected at the site of the soon-to-be new township offices, on the south side of the King Road, opposite the King City Cemetery.   Site preparation has been started after a lengthy delay due to an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.   Completion of the new building will not happen until 2018.

Pine Farms Orchard beckons...




At left are three varieties of apples that I have never heard of before. 
But I'm sure many apple fanciers will be familiar with them.



Resident Muscovy Ducks
I wonder if ducks eat apples?


Thick gnarled trunks, above, attest to the decades-long age of the miniature apple trees, as does the ancient International pickup truck pictured below.


Pine Farms Orchard
is located north of King City on the 16th Sideroad, between Keele Street and Jane Street.
Weekends are a madhouse at this time of year but fortunately the orchard is open weekdays also.
And of course there is the ever-popular cafe.

Popular cafe is expanding in King City


 A new and greatly expanded rear deck is being added to the Roost Cafe, opposite the Anglican Church, on Keele Street, south of the King Road in King City.   The cafe is now just over a year old and appears to be thriving.   Allison Mumford, operator of The Roost has many more changes and expanded services in mind for this year and next.

2017 Schomberg Street Gallery show and sale

"Who was that masked artist?"

I can't seem to attend the Schomberg Street Gallery each year without getting a photo of one of the numerous, art-loving pooches around and about.   The one above belonged to one of the artists and just two weeks ago it was a saved rescue dog.   Its new owners welcomed it into their home just the day before the Street Gallery.   It was a charmer.


This Main Street Schomberg home got as much attention as the Schomberg Street Gallery art show.   It is for sale and someone made a wise decision to hold an open house on the same day as the art show and sale.   It drew an endless stream of curious visitors.

This year's Street Gallery featured more artists than ever and the overall quality of the many art forms was the best ever.

Weston Road ~ in the hamlet of Strange

Photo by Barry Wallace
King Township has a well-earned reputation of being known as one of Canada's top hot-spots for horses, but this symbol of the wild west, in the hamlet of Strange, just north of the King Road, would suggest that King is long-horn cattle country also.
