The balmy temperatures of late spring have caused the leaves to bud at Lafontaine RV Resort, and everyone is anticipating a delightful summer. Our pool will be open soon, and campers have already begun making the quintessential camping treat -- s’mores. As this is our first long weekend of the season, residents are smiling and eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new event tent and playground, where many happy hours will be spent.

In addition to park activities, the community offers fun doings in the coming days. Two of the local highlights in June include the Midland Butter Tart Festival and Party on the Dock.

Midland Butter Tart Festival

On June 11, tens of thousands of folks will head to our area to attend the Midland Butter Tart Festival. A premier celebration of the favorite pastry of Canadians, the event will include artisans, live entertainment and a contest to see who can bake the best tarts in the province. Whether you hail from Ontario or you are a first-time visitor, you simply must come sample the delectables. Everyone is sure to have a sweet time.

Party on the Dock

The Midland town harbor will be the scene of Party on the Dock on the evening of June 17. Hotel California, an Eagles tribute band known for soaring harmonies, will entertain an appreciative crowd, and cheeseburgers and pizza will be available for purchase. Tickets are $35 at the gate, but you may buy them in advance for $25 to $30. The show starts at 7 p.m.

Lafontaine RV Resort

Our RV park in Ontario has a lot of cool things happening this year. Adult card nights are held on Saturday nights in May. In June, the calendar of events includes wagon rides, crafts and a movie night for the kids, as well as a scentsy party, band entertainment and swimming for the family. A special fireworks display will be held on July 1. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 905-894-7307, or send an email to lafontaine@carefreervresorts.com.
