TORONTO, Aug. 5 /CNW/ - What does a nudist wear? If you answer "Nothing,"
you're partly wrong! And Tilley Endurables will be quick to point out why.
Tilley hats are the only clothing officially endorsed by Canada's two
nudist organizations. At their coming joint festival, The Federation of
Canadian Naturists and the Fédération québécoise de naturisme will hold a
prize draw for hats that Tilley has generously donated.
This Fifth Annual Canadian Naturist Festival will take place August 7th
to 10th at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park, north of Toronto. The festival, a
celebration of naturist life, is drawing people from as far away as British
Columbia and California.
It will include instructive presentations and lively discussions.
Children will enjoy fun activities, planned for both youngsters and teens.
At the festival on August 9, the official announcement will be made of
the winners of two journalism prizes, awarded for the best articles appearing
in Canada in 2007 (one in English, one in French) that discuss naturism in
This year's winners:
In English: Elizabeth Withey, for her article "When winter makes nudism a
bit too nipply, nudists get their fix with a dip at the pool," appearing
in the Edmonton Journal, January 6, 2007.
In French: Eve Dumas, for her article "Le naturisme et les enfants",
appearing in La Presse, July 30, 2007.
This year's jury was composed of seven bilingual members, national and
international journalists and naturist leaders. The annual competition is
sponsored by the Fondation naturiste du Québec in co-operation with the
Fédération québécoise de naturisme and the Federation of Canadian Naturists.
