Hastings

Hastings, Ontario is an amalgamated village on the Trent River, in what is considered to be Ontario's "cottage country". Hastings exists within the municipality of Trent Hills, Northumberland County, in the province of Ontario, Canada. Hastings gained its present name in 1852 and was officially incorporated as a village in 1874. It is known as "The Hub of the Trent", as Hastings is directly on the Trent River, and serves as a major centre for tourists, boaters, and fishermen. One of Hastings' major symbols is a tall blue water tower which can be seen from kilometres outside of the community.

Hastings is now part of the municipality of Trent Hills, and makes up the second biggest population centre in the municipality.

A marina was built in Hastings which added to the already busy waterfront. In continuation of the streetscape design theme from the new Hastings Village Marina, a Hastings Waterfront & Downtown Improvement Plan was prepared in early 2009. In 2009, after a four-year break, the local Chamber of Commerce was revived.[2] Its website contains a number of historical photographs of Hastings. There is a chapter of the Lions Club in the village which is associated with the largest annual event in Hastings, the Canada Day celebrations. The celebrations include a parade that runs through downtown during the day, and a fireworks display at the waterfront at sundown among other events. In recent years, the fireworks display has attracted an increasing number of spectators, and despite Hastings being a relatively small community, the display has been considered one of the best in Ontario.

The Hastings Memorial Arena is a multipurpose arena located in downtown Hastings. The arena is home to a hockey team in the OMHA and houses numerous other local events.
