Programming

We are solidifying our programming for July 1st and I am happy to announce that the KIDS ZONE will be hosting the Not So Amateur Amateurs group who will be bringing with them a Castle Maze inflatable, a balloon artist and a sketch artist who will do quick souvenir drawings of our visitors. The sketch is free but a donation toward Canada Day programming is always appreciated.

The face painters are coming back as is the Loyalist Township’s “Come Out and Play” trailer. We are looking for older teenagers to help staff the trailer. It might be a great way to get volunteer hours if you need them and training is provided. If you know someone who might be interested they can reach Hilary at the Township – her email is hfennell@loyalist.ca

In the afternoon everybody looks forward to the Firemen’s Foam and the horse drawn wagon rides and they will be back.

Kouri’s Kopters will be returning,  and if you didn’t get a ride last year, you won’t want to miss the chance to see Bath from the air.

 

Music

There will be buskers in Centennial Park  and on the streets starting about 10 am. In the afternoon, Almost Famous will provide the entertainment starting at 2 pm.

Our outdoor concert ” Bath Rocks on Canada Day will start at 8 pm and lead into the Fireworks. The Tonekats are a great group and there will be some special guests playing with them. More about that later.

Finally the Vendors Market is accepting applications for spots and the Parade registration will begin soon. See the appropriate icon on this website for more information.

Only  71  days till July 1st!
