Hey kids, Nick Cino here. There’s so much cool stuff happening over the long weekend, that I’ve officially dubbed it the “CANADA DAY WEEKEND OF AWESOMENESS”. Yeah, I knew you’d like it. Celebrate our fine country with ribs, tunes and more. Here’s a rundown of all the awesomeness that awaits you:
OH CANADA RIBFEST, WATERDOWN – JUNE 27-JULY 1ST
My favourite time of the year is upon us: RIB SEASON! The Oh Canada Ribfest is happening at Memorial Park in Waterdown from Friday to Tuesday, that’s 5 whole days of ribs! Even better: Y108 will broadcasting live! Scott Penfold will be there Mon, June 30 2-6pm, and I’ll be there Canada Day July 1st 12-6pm! Come visit us and bring me some ribs (don’t forget the coleslaw).
LACHIE MUSIC FEST – CAYUGA SPEEDWAY – JUNE 28 + 29
The Lachie Music Fest is an insanely awesome way to spend your Canada long weekend, rocking with some of the country’s finest bands. Where else can you get I Mother Earth, Goldfinger, Headstones, Glorious Sons, Rival Sons, and The Trews on the same bill? You can also camp and make it a truly Canadian long weekend.
No long weekend would be complete without some good ol fashioned fireworks! Here’s where you can catch the light show:
Bayfront and Pier 4 Parks, Hamilton – Fireworks @10pm
Bronte Park, Oakville – Fireworks @10pm
