Friendliness is typical in small towns. Huntsville has a population of about 20,000 people. They like to have fun. Go in July for the famous DockFest along Huntsville’s historic downtown waterfront. The parade of specially decorated bathtubs is one of the highlights. If you like running and training for marathons, then this is the place for you as well. You can choose between the ultra-trail running race, Limberlost Challenge. Water sports are honored as well. The Muskoka River X Classic, a paddling race, is popular.
