Attention US Transfers
If you travel by land (car/bus/van) or via sea port (ferry) you may be able to cross the border with a passport card, which is cheaper than a passport book. For more information please visit the following page at the U.S. Department of State website.
Your U.S. dollar will be worth 20-30% more* than the Canadian dollar due to currency exchange rates. While many establishments accept U.S. cash, not all will do so. Some U.S. credit cards will automatically calculate the exchange rate without a foreign transaction fee; you may want to contact your card's customer service line to see what fee, if any, they charge.
*To see an approximation of the current exchange rate please see sites online such as http://www.xe.com.†

Canmore is located about 60 minutes west from the outskirts of Calgary which has the third busiest airport in Canada. The town of Canmore lies nestled along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It is close to Banff and Kananaskis Country. Chosen as the site of the Nordic Ski events (Canmore Nordic Center) for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, Canmore began attracting international attention as a major tourist destination. It has sustainable growth with a small town feel. There are several walking and cycling trails leading to the downtown core. Enjoy golfing, sightseeing, hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, biking, shopping, observing wildlife, a multitude of eating establishments, or just relaxing.
Banff National Park, which is about 20 minutes from Canmore, was established in 1885 as Canada’s first National Park and third in the world. The park was awarded a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation in 1984. Some describe it as “paradise”…“heaven on earth”…“a place where God lingered during creation.” The park and town site offers rugged beauty, unspoiled landscapes, and pristine mountain ranges. You will be hard pressed to find a finer balance of unspoiled wilderness and refined amenities. Experience an unrivaled alpine escape at “The World’s Finest National Park”. You can also drink in nature’s wonder at Lake Louise – one of the Canadian Rockies’ most beloved destinations, with turquoise waters sparkling underneath the towering Victoria Glacier. Enjoy days beyond compare in the unspoiled beauty that the area can offer.

Why should you attend the Feast of Tabernacles in Midland, Ontario, Canada? The answer is because you will have the luxury of enjoying a self-contained Feast. Weather will not be a factor even though the feast is later this year. Last year we held in-house activities that were a huge success and will be repeated.
Midland is located on beautiful Southern Georgian Bay, only 90 minutes from Toronto and 30 minutes from Barrie. The area has a natural blend of scenic landscapes, wildlife diversity and a picturesque harbor with waterfront trails and parkland. The spectacular fall colors should be at their best during the Feast. You can also visit several historic attractions that reflect the region’s rich cultures.
There is an array of shopping in the historic downtown, or a short drive to Barrie. For food lovers, there are local culinary delights and a variety of restaurants throughout the area; for those who would prefer to stay in, dining will be available at the on site “12 West Grill + Lounge” and will also offer room service.
One of the main reasons for returning to Midland is the warm and friendly welcome that we received at the Best Western Highland Inn and Conference Centre over the last three years. It is the premier full-service hotel in the Southern Georgian Bay area, and the hotel recently received the prestigious Director's Award from Best Western International. It has an excellent re-modeled ballroom with seating capacity for 500 people.
Accommodations include standard rooms as well as suites that come complete with a small refrigerator, a coffeemaker; all rooms include free high-speed Internet. Room rates start at $79 for the standard room and up to $99 for a Fireplace Jacuzzi Suite. Your room rate includes a hot breakfast at the onsite Atrium Café. The Atrium also provides a wonderful setting for interaction and relaxation as you connect with other spiritual members of the family.
Other amenities at the Best Western include a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna for total relaxation.
For those who need alternative housing, there are also cottages and bed-and-breakfasts in the area. Festival activities once more center on the family beginning with a meet-and greet night, seniors’ brunch, bible studies, Ladies seminar, family day, games night, hymn sing and much more.
For those who have not yet experienced the quaint little town of Midland we hope this will be the year you do; for those who have attended in the past we invite you to try it again for the first time.
Location of Services: 924 King St., Midland, Ontario (at the corner of Hwy. 12).
First Service: Sunday October 16, at 7:30 p.m.
Taxes: 13 percent for guest rooms.
