Boats, Brits, and Beer!

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/07/20

I’ve got a busy weekend lined up for you!


I’ll be kicking Saturday off at the Blood Donor Clinic in Oshawa! They are gearing up for the August long weekend coming up in a couple of weeks and as always donors are needed! Especially during this busy time! Give the gift of life on Saturday where they are open from 8:00AM until 2:00PM. If you can’t make it out on Saturday book an appointment for another day at


Next up, I’ll be heading over to the Newcastle Marina! Their annual Wooden Boat Festival is on from 10:00AM-5:00PM where there is fun for the whole family! Who could resist spending a day by the lake?


Calling all Brits! Newcomers and others who have already settled here in Canada. It’s the first ever Brit Fest happening at Holiday Gardens in Pickering! From 12:00PM-5:00PM get your hands on some delicious chicken provided by Nandos before it’s gone! There will be lots of live British entertainment to enjoy as well! Check out their Instagram: @BritFestCA so you don’t miss any of the action!


After I’m full of chicken I’ll be ending my day with a Winsticker Drive Through somewhere in Oshawa! Stay tuned.


On Sunday morning I’ll be off to Scarborough. The Glen Rouge Campground entrance in Rouge Park is where you can find me gearing up for their guided trail hikes! These hikes are always a great excuse to get out and enjoy the weather and check out something you may not normally do yourself!


Afterwards, it’s Craft Brewery Day at Ajax Downs! Admission is completely FREE and you can spend an afternoon sampling some craft beers from all over and even catch a few of the horse races while you’re at it! The first pour will be at 12:55PM and they’ll be closing up at 4:30PM.


Keep listening to KX96 to find out where I’ll be ending my day with a Winsticker Drive Through!


Hope to see you out there this weekend! It’s going to be a good one! Remember if there’s ever an event you think I should know about, feel free to send me an email at:
