2013 Ice Cream Trail

The Ice Cream Trail Kicks-Off This Friday!

If you are looking for a fun outing this summer, Huron-Kinloss is the place to go! This year marks the third annual Huron-Kinloss Ice Cream Trail™. The Ice Cream Trail™ is a fun-filled photo scavenger hunt for the whole family which takes participants to ice cream stops along the trail past beaches, unique shops, golf courses, parks, trails, a pool and a splash pad. The Trail can be completed in a one-day trip or you can spread your adventure out over the summer.

The Ice Cream Trail™ is also a contest! Players follow a map to the eleven (11) ice cream stops and read clues to find Sammy Sprinkles.  Once you find Sammy, you take a picture with him at each location and submit the pictures with a completed entry form to the Township of Huron-Kinloss. You will receive a free t-shirt for collecting all eleven (11) pictures and a chance to win the grand prize of 250 Huron-Kinloss Dollars. Special prizes will also be awarded for the funniest, most creative and largest group photos.
There are four (4) new stops this year, which means more ice cream, and new adventures! There are also lots of surprises along the way. Sammy Sprinkles has some fun “Fall Fair” activities for you to do as he is celebrating the 150th anniversaries of the Fall Fairs in Lucknow and Ripley (hint: ever milked a cow?)! Young or old, the Ice Cream Trail™ is a great way to spend time with family or friends. The contest runs May 17th to September 29th, 2013 and entries must be received by October 15, 2013 to qualify for the grand prize. Visit for more details!


The Township of Huron-Kinloss publishes a newsletter twice a year, which is then distributed to residents with their tax bill(s). Please see the right side for our most recent newsletters.
