Discover Events & Attractions in Coldwater
Coldwater Denture Clinic is located right on the main strip and in the heart of Coldwater, Ontario. The beautiful and historic village of Coldwater is nestled approximately 15 minutes between Midland and Orillia, and is considered the second oldest settlement in Ontario where the first settlers set camp in the mid-1700s. The Ojibwa Indians referred to the area as GIS-SI-NAUSE-BING meaning "Cold River" or "Cold Water," but don't be dismayed, today the village is filled with warmth and events and attractions for people of all ages. Welcome to Coldwater, Ontario!

Annual Coldwater Duck Race
Quack, quack! The annual Coldwater Duck Race, organized by the Coldwater Lions Club, is an awesome opportunity to visit the village for games, horseback riding, meet local farmers and vendors, hear live music and to cheer for the ducks! The event usually starts with a pancake breakfast at the Coldwater Community Centre, followed by a parade and ending with the anticipated duck race! Each year, approximately 3,000 yellow rubber ducks are released into the Coldwater River for the ultimate race to the finish line. Each duck has a number and owner who cheers as the ducks float to the finish line for prizes. Proceeds from the event go back to the youth community. Website: www.ColdwaterLions.com
