Jolly Jog

Dig through your closets and find your festive holiday attire! The Jolly Jog is a family friendly event designed to get you in the holiday spirit.

There will be a short route (approx. 1.5 km) and a longer route (approx. 5 km). Please wear appropriate attire and footwear for the conditions. The weather will determine the ground cover on the routes.

Every participant in festive attire will be given something to take home and have the chance to win a door prize. Cash donations for the Haliburton County Food Bank are appreciated, but not necessary for participation.

Masks will be required when in close proximity to people outside of your household or when entering the Haliburton Highlands Museum.
