Chris,

It's nice to see that some small communities celebrate these things.

Chris, I'd be interested to know the reason for renaming the town.

Brian, these events are a lot of fun and is part of the reason I love living in a small town (OK, just outside of a small town)

Malcolm, The name was changed after the first commercial Bee Colonies in Ontario were started in the 1870's.  It was originally our Beeton bees, split and moved to Georgian Bay (in an attempt to protect them from the elements) that caused another small community to be renamed "Honey Harbour"
