Explore Huntsville seeks Expressions of Interest for Eclipse Walk With Light venue

Huntsville, ON, March 13, 2024 – Eclipse Walk With Light is on the move! Following two successful seasons at Muskoka Heritage Place and a brief hiatus, Explore Huntsville has exciting plans for this popular local attraction — plans that begin with a local business partnership.

We’re seeking a local business to help us host a light walk that is even more enchanting and more engaging, one that will incorporate even more opportunity for outdoor activities in the off-season and winter months.

“This is an incredible opportunity for a local business to draw visitors to their property,” says Kelly Haywood, executive director of Explore Huntsville and the Huntsville Municipal Accommodation Tax Association. “Eclipse saw almost 60,000 visitors through its gates in its first two seasons and its future is bright.”

Landowners interested in this opportunity can review details here. Intentions to submit are requested by March 18, with expressions of interest due no later than March 25.

Prospective hosts are welcome and encouraged to submit a proposal to also operate the attraction and retain a negotiated portion of the profits.
