The first Muskoka Winter Carnival was held in 1971 and was designed to grow tourism during the winter months in Ontario, Canada. It was a week-long festival with beer-related events and winter recreational activities within the towns of Gravenhurst and Huntsville. The mascot is an otter named Skokie and his name was chosen based on an elementary school contest. The carnival ran every year until the 1990s and then was revived again in 2008.
