You Must Visit This Amazing Cranberry Marsh In Ontario

Pumpkin patches are nice, but have you ever been to a cranberry marsh? This fall, try something new and head over to Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh for a truly unique adventure.

Located in Bala of the Muskoka Lakes, the family-run facility offers two incredible fall experiences that are all quintessentially Canadian: The Bog-to-Bottle Tour and The Cranberry Plunge.

The Bog-to-Bottle Tour is a year-round attraction that showcases the art of making award-winning wines, starting from the harvest at the cranberry bog to the fermentation process. The tour is offered daily at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm and only costs $15 per person (plus tax).

The Cranberry Plunge is a fall attraction that gives participants a true cranberry marsh experience. Dressed in smocks, they will have the chance to plunge into the marsh and wade in a sea of cranberries. This activity is available by reservation only on weekdays at 12 pm and 2 pm (Oct 2-6 and Oct 10-12); however, drop-ins are available during the weekends from 10 am to 4 pm (Sept 30-Oct 1, Oct 7-Oct 9 and Oct 13-15). The best part? It only costs $10 per person (plus tax)!

Parliament is officially in session as of Monday, November 22, and Canada's Usher of the Black Rod had a very important part to play in the ceremony.

If you're wondering what exactly it is that Black Rod does (that's the genuine short version of his name, by the way), he's the person at the beginning of the throne speech who ceremoniously leads the Senate Speaker's parade.
