Brighton’s Mayor Mark Walas and Council are hosting a New Year’s Levée on Friday, January 1, 2016

What is a levée?

Today, levées are the receptions (usually, but not necessarily, on New Year’s Day) held by the governor general, the lieutenant governors of the provinces, the military and others, to mark the start of another year and to provide an opportunity for the public to pay their respects. – Wikipedia

“Enjoy your visit to the charming harbour town of Brighton, located on Highway 2 along the scenic shores of Lake Ontario, an hour and a half east of Toronto.

Brighton offers the tranquil atmosphere of a small town with a wide range of boutiques and annual activities destined to leave you with lasting memories! Our range of services appeal to seniors, young families, and new residents including well-maintained parks, an attractive education system and an active Community and Recreation Centre for all ages! These assets, paired with the diverse selection of residential housing and our positioning in the region, make Brighton an attractive place to live.

One of the greatest year round destinations in Brighton is Presqu’ile Provincial Park; famous for lakeside camping, swimming, windsurfing, hiking and birding with over 220,000 visitors annually. Visitors to the park receive a warm welcome at ‘The Gates’, a gallery and performance space for those who share an interest and passion for promoting arts and culture! Lasting memories are also made each fall during Brighton’s Applefest, a celebration of our rich agricultural land and abundance of apple orchards!

Explore Brighton’s history with a visit to Memory Junction , Hilton Hall Heritage Center and Proctor House Museum.

These experiences and assets within the community strongly impact Brighton’s business climate. With its heritage mainstreet, front-porch Victorian flavour and proximity to the 401, Brighton provides the backdrop for a thriving commercial area. This year we are thrilled to be offering new business opportunities with 50 acres of industrial lands that will be serviced and available for investment. This will provide much needed space for growth of our industrial/ commercial business base.

Located at the western gateway of the Bay of Quinte Region and east end of Northumberland County, we invite you to visit Brighton and let us provide you the best of both worlds in this region!” –
