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.
Anew 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.
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.
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.
