Downtown Orillia’s Annual Car Show
What an exciting day in Orillia at the 2011 downtown car show. Yes, I was there today despite the threat of rain. There was no disappointment either. As I sit here writing this I am located at 82 Colborne Street and can here the massive collection of horsepower beginning to leave. Here are some of the cars you’ll see in the Orillia car pictures below. Only one of them is not a car but it suited the occasion very well. I will let you guess which one it is.
Our Neighbors in Downtown Orillia
While walking around in Downtown Orillia today I observed the amazing heritage buildings.
It was a beautiful day today. It seemed like a great time to take a walk in downtown Orillia. Maybe I could get a better idea of the kind of businesses downtown merchants own and operate!

So the journey began on Matchedash with a briefcase and camera in hand. Are you ready for good old heritage? I hope so, because that’s what Orillia is all about.
It’s fun seeing what you can discover about a city that is new to you. Although I have been visiting Orillia for decades I have recently moved up here to live. While still discovering my way around, I wanted to see what could be found online about the City of Orillia.
I learned plenty of new things about The Sunshine City.
