Tim Hortons opening a ‘boat-thru’ this weekend on Lake Scugog, Ont.

No, that’s not a mirage. It is, in fact, a floating Tim Hortons. What could be more Canadian than that? Well, maybe a Timmies on a frozen lake, but I’m sure the company’s engineers are still hard at work on the winter iteration.

This weekend, attendees of the Lake Scugog Regatta in Caesarea, Ont., will be treated to the first-ever Tim Hortons boat-thru. Yes, a drive-thru for boats. On August 5 and 6 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., the floating structure will be open to hungry (and thirsty) boaters, whether you’re in a motorboat, a pedal boat, or a canoe. Customers can place their order without stepping foot on dry land. And anyone who does show up in a watercraft is entitled to sample a free cold drink from Tim Hortons’s new summer beverage lineup, including Vanilla Iced Lattes, Caramel Toffee Cold Brews, and Sparkling Quenchers.

The floating Tims will be located next to Beacon Marina and only accessible by watercraft. The boat-thru is also just open this weekend. Once the regatta is over, the floating Tims will be packed away.

Speaking of the regatta, it’s entering its 93rd year this summer. While you’re munching on Tim Hortons, why not dock the boat and take part in Saturday’s watermelon eating contest, the egg toss, and the tug of war? Or save your strength for Sunday’s fishing derby, swim and kayak races, and the preeminent Lake Scugog Championship Sailboat Race.
