Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/10/05

It’s Thanksgiving weekend in KX Country! If you’re not too stuffed from a delicious turkey dinner I’ve got some awesome events for you to check out!

On Saturday I’ll be heading to Canadian Tire in Bowmanville to start things off! The Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive is happening there from 10:00AM-3:00PM. You’ll see firefighters in various spots around the parking lot holding a fire boot. Our goal is to fill them up with as much money as we can, all in support of Muscular Dystrophy!

I’ll be heading to the Heydenshore Pavilion in Whitby next for the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides! The walk relies on the generous support of volunteers, donors, and partners to meet its goal of giving Canadians a new leash on life. Come out with your furry friend! Registration begins at 10:00AM and the walk starts at 11:00AM.

I will then be spending my afternoon at the Forsythe Family Farms in Uxbridge for their Harvestfest! It’s finally pumpkin picking season! Come out and pick your pumpkin. You can also check out the scavenger hunts, wagon rides, and so much more!

I’ll be ending Saturday with a Winsticker Drive Thru in Pickering. If you need to get registered for a KX96 Winsticker I can do that for you! Just keep listening to KX96 on Saturday afternoon to find out exactly where you can find me!

The fall theme continues on Sunday as I make my way to Downsview Park in Toronto for Pumpkinfest! Lots of beautiful fall colours to see and pumpkin spice everything! Yum! It’s completely free to check out and you can enjoy the pumpkin patch, midway rides, carnival games, an inflatable corn maze and more!

I’ll be heading to the Markham Fairgrounds on Sunday afternoon to see what Kidapalooza is all about! The indoor and outdoor fun fair is set to include fall themed activities and games as well as pony rides, face painting, and even rock climbing!

I’ll be finishing the weekend off with a Winsticker Drive Thru. You can get registered for your very own KX96 Winsticker in Whitby! All you have to do is listen to KX96 to find out exactly where I’ll be and then you could be the next winner on Winsticker Wednesday!

If you see me out this weekend, come and visit the Events Cruiser to pick up your meat snack from Great Canadian Meat!

Remember if there’s ever an event you think I should know about, send me an email at:

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving Weekend and eat as much turkey and pumpkin pie as your heart desires!
