The Northern Ontario Open Country Singing Contest will be back this summer after taking a year off. The long running event will be in Callander this year, from July 31st to August 1st. The contests was cancelled last year because it couldn’t be held at Lee Park, while North Bay’s Summer in the Park was going on, and it was too little notice for organizers to get a new location. A fundraising event for this year’s contest is now being planned for March.
