This coming weekend is another fun packed one in our area. With Covid restrictions over, this summer has been a busy one and there has been something for everyone. August 5-6 weekend is no exception.
If you are a car buff, you will not want to miss the Bothwell Optimist Old Auto Car Show and Flea Market. This is one of Canada's largest one day shows with over 1200 cars on display. It is also the largest Auto Flea Market around so if you need some rare parts for your vintage auto this is the place to go. Check their website for times and schedule of events. The event kicks off with a Parade on Friday night August 5th at 7 P.M. and the event takes place in Victoria Park in Bothwell. The Flea Market will open at the Park, Friday and Saturday at 8A.M.
There will be great food, draws and entertainment. Be sure to come out and include this weekend event in your schedule.
Another great event taking place a the CK Municipal Airport is Flight Fest on Saturday August 6 The airport is located at 8528 14th line in Merlin. I do not know any man or child especially who is not fascinated with airoplanes. And Airoplanes there will be. The various display will take place from 10 A.M. when the event kicks off until 4 P.M.
The evenings entertainment will begin at at 5 P.M. Dan Bremmer will start the fantastic line-up and at 6:30 Hotel California, The original Eagle Tribute Band. Merlin’s own home-grown star Michelle Wright will close the show at the end of the evening.
There will be free draws and a great event for the whole family. There is no entrance fee to get in but tickets are still needed. Check their website for details. It is well worth the drive.
