A rainbow was already visible in Victoria Park before the rain this morning as members of the community gathered to celebrate the fifth annual Kawartha Lakes Pride Picnic. As the clouds gave way and the showers began, a canopy of rainbow umbrellas sprang open and the festivities continued.
Kawartha Lakes Pride organizer Matthew Maddox estimated that between 300-400 people attended today’s event. It was Maddox, along with his close friend Carry Pearson who decided to bring Pride to Lindsay, five years ago.
Lindsay is known as a great thoroughfare to the lakes and rivers of Kawartha Lakes for top-notch fishing, whether by boat or from the shore. Fishing is also a great way to enjoy the company of young and old. As a pastime, or sport fishing, it is another way to experience our great outdoors and see Lindsay from a different vantage point.

Curious about basic income and whether or not you qualify?
The Ontario Basic Income Pilot group will host a booth at the Lindsay Central Exhibition to provide more information to town residents.
Postcards will be handed out to any and all visitors interested, and any visitors who would like more information regarding the pilot will be provided with an information brochure.
The team will also collect names and contact information from visitors who are interested in learning more about, or who are interested in applying, for the basic income.
When the Lindsay Central Exhibition began, the idea of Canada was still 13 years away. What started out as a modest event of the Lindsay Agricultural Society has turned into the fourth largest agricultural fair in the province and one of Ontario’s top 10 fairs overall.
In fact, General Manager Harry Stoddart says the five day event which starts Sept. 20 this week, had gotten so large and sprawling that organizers took steps to make it feel more intimate this year.
