'Port Perry is a victorian connoisseur's delight with more architectural gems than any other community its size in the country. The main streets have been restored and gently roll down to the waterfront and up top homes that have kept their original grandiose from a century ago.'

This event is a part of the Ontario Culture Days Regional Hub Program.
