Happy August Long Weekend!

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/08/03

I’ve got a fun filled weekend for you with things going on all across the GTA!

Saturday morning I will be starting things off at the Blood Donor Clinic in Oshawa. This is an extremely busy time of year for them and they need YOU! If you’re in the Oshawa area you are encouraged to come out and donate on this long weekend! You can book your appointment anytime at

Next up I will be heading all the way out to Cobourg Beach! Their annual Sandcastle Festival is happening all day long! Sculpting lessons start at 10:00AM and the competition at 10:30. It’s going to be a hot one so you’ll definitely want to be down by the water this weekend. They will have a live DJ all afternoon and to finish the day off at night they will have a movie in the park followed by fireworks!

Following up in the afternoon I will be off to Clarington Fields in Bowmanville for the 25th Annual Cystic Fibrosis Softball Tournament. Anyone is welcome to come out! There will be raffles, prizes, a BBQ and more!

To finish off Saturday I will be doing a Winsticker Drive Through, keep listening to KX96 to find out where I will be!

On Sunday morning I’ll be off to Toronto to check out The Brain Project! This is an awesome art exhibit which is actually set up all over the city to raise awareness for brain research and patient care. I’ll be checking out the art displays at Nathan Phillips Square but its running until the end of August if you’re looking for a day to check it out yourself!

Next I will be off to the Toronto Zoo for Penguin Awareness Day! It’s on from 11:00AM-3:00PM where you can get up-close and personal with our feathered friends! There are also lots of fun games for the kids and some unique penguin prizes you could win!

I’ll be wrapping up my weekend with another Winsticker Drive Through! Keep your radio on KX96 to find out where you can get registered for yours!

Hope to see you out there this weekend!
