Wasaga Beach was the first beach in North America to be recognized as a “Blue Flag Beach”, an international award for clean beaches. Over two million people visit Wasaga Beach every summer to stroll the shores of the longest freshwater beach in the world, swim in warm clean waters and enjoy the panoramic Mountain View across the Bay.
We intend to roll out the “Blue Flag Beach” carpet to our film festival partners and participants for our second annual Wasaga Beach Film Festival scheduled for January 26th, 2013. The Film Festival activities on January 26th will also feature art groups, music, displays and performances provided by Wasaga Beach and surrounding area artists.
