Festivals, Food and Fun!

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/07/27

I have an awesome weekend lined up!

If you remember last weekend we celebrated the first ever Brit Fest Canada, now this weekend I will be heading to Uxbridge first thing on Saturday morning for the Scottish Festival! Come out to get your hands on some delicious Scottish food and all the bagpipes and highland dancing you can handle!

Next, I’ll be heading over to Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary in Pickering for their Bake/Yard Sale and BBQ. It’s only on from 10:00AM-2:00PM but also happening on Sunday during the same times! There’s lots you can shop for or enjoy a hotdog while visiting with their cats!

Afterwards I’ll be heading to Guild Park and Gardens in Scarborough for The Guild Alive with Culture Arts Festival! Really looking forward to checking this out! It’s completely free to get in and there are over eighty artists and vendors you can check out! There’s also a children’s area and a beer garden so there is definitely something for everyone! If you can’t make it out there on Saturday, it’s open on Sunday as well!

Sunday will start at the Midtown Mall in Oshawa where the Habitat for Humanity Charity Car Wash is happening from 12:00PM-4:00PM. A wash is only $5 and it all goes towards building homes for low-income families in Durham Region. You’ll even get to sit back and relax with a cold refreshment while your car is washed!

I’ll be spending the afternoon in the best way possible, down by the beach in Cobourg! It’s the Courtyard Summer Series in Victoria Park. This is the second of their four themed weekends, the courtyard is transformed into a licensed cantina where you can enjoy drinks and food with all proceeds going back to the town and to Northumberland Local Food for Local Good.

I’ll be finishing my weekend with a Winsticker Drive Through so make sure you’re listening to KX96 to find out where you can get registered for your very own Winsticker and be the next winner on Winsticker Wednesday!

Hope to see you out there this weekend!
