Canada’s Largest Camping and Country Music Festival Moves to Upgraded Burl’s Creek Festival Site
Tuesday, October 28, 2014 – Republic Live, organizers of the Boots and Hearts Music Festival, announced earlier today that tickets and camping for the 2015 festival will go on sale at 12 pm ET on Friday, October 31, 2014. The festival has grown considerably in three short years to become Canada’s largest camping and country music festival and in an effort to provide the best fan experience possible the event is being relocated to the Burl’s Creek site in Oro-Medonte, 15 minutes north of Barrie. Last week Florida Georgia Line announced they would be headlining the event and a formal artist announcement from Republic Live will take place next week on November 5th during the CMA Awards. Details on all tickets and camping offerings are currently available atwww.bootsandhearts.com and the full-event General Admission early-bird tickets for $199.99, along with all other offerings, will go on sale at 12 pm ET on Friday, October 31, 2014. Organizers are reminding fans that all items are limited in quantity and they expect the event to sell out well in advance of the festival date, similarly to last year.
“Our two biggest requests in our post-festival survey were to make more camping available and to have Florida Georgia Line headline in 2015, so we’re really excited to be able to make this announcement for our fans,” said Shannon McNevan, Executive Director, Republic Live. “The newly renovated grounds at Burls Creek will allow us to offer way more camping and add to the amazing #Bootslife community on-site. With our fans ranking Florida Georgia Line as their #1 artist to see for 2015 we went after them with everything we had and it was really cool to hear them talk about being so stoked to play our event. We’ve changed up a few of our ticket offerings this year so we’re encouraging everyone to go to our website and take a look so they know exactly what they want to buy before we go on-sale October 31st. We fully expect to sell out of all of our price points quickly again this year and all items, including camping and parking, are limited.”
Boots and Hearts 2015 tickets are available exclusively at www.bootsandhearts.com and fans are encouraged to buy early as General Admission tickets are released in allotments at various price points. Once that price point sells out all other items, including camping options, parking, shower passes, etc. are put ON HOLD until the next allotment of tickets is released at the next price point and then all items are released again for ON-SALE. This ensures that only those purchasing tickets have access to all other options such as camping and the process is equitable to all fans.
A few other key changes have been made to tickets offerings this year such as premium tickets can only be purchased as part of the Premium Experience Packages, not as upgrades, and no single day passes will be available, only full event tickets are being offered for 2015. General Admission tickets, premium tickets, camping, parking and shower passes will all go on-sale at 12 pm EST on Friday, October 31, 2014 and full details are available at www.bootsandhearts.com
Boots and Hearts is an annual country music festival event run by Republic Live, and will take place at Burl’s Creek, in Oro-Medonte, Ontario August 6 – 9 in 2015. Last week Florida Georgia Line announced they would be headlining the annual country music festival and a formal artist announcement from Republic Live will take place next week on November 5th during the CMAs.

At 1095 Warminster Side Rd at RR#3 Coldwater there is a farm doing something incredible.
Horseplay Sanctuary owned and operated by Lillian Tepera and Robert Timlin, is a rescue and shelter farm for mistreated, injured, infirm, abused, neglected and abandoned horses. In addition to saving horses the facility provides therapeutic equine programs to abused women and children and to individuals with physical or cognitive impairment.
For 7 years the couple offered therapeutic riding programs under the Stonegate Farm name, but now as Horseplay Sanctuary they are proud to be recognized as a Registered Charitable operation by the CRA. Both Lillian and Robert have full time jobs outside of Horseplay Sanctuary to keep this sanctuary afloat, but donations and volunteers are also vital for the operation. The time and cost to operate this sanctuary is unbelievable, but with huge hearts Lillian and Robert are committed to help people with horses and save horses who otherwise have no hope.
The full story of Horseplay Sanctuary is at horseplaysanctuary.com, but take a look at what Jack and Carey discovered on a recent visit to the farm.

We received a good news story from Bob Wright this morning and we want to send out a big thank you to the residents of Bass Lake Woodlands, Warminster, Bass Line and the Marchmount area who helped to make the good news story possible. It surrounds the success of the food drive this past Saturday which was a huge success in support of the Salvation Army.
Bob said; “Thank you so very much for all of your help with this fall’s food drive. I estimate that with your help we collected at least one & a half times as much food for the Salvation Army this time, as we did last fall. (By the way they filled 2 trucks last year)
It is incredible how giving and willing to help others, the folks in our collection area are. It is awesome to see God’s hand at work in our community. Again I thank you for all that you folks do in & for our community. We’re already looking forward to our spring food drive.
