Summer Kick Off at Belly Ice Cream

June 30 from 8:00 – 10:00 pm at the Algonquin Theatre
Johnny Zatylny is under no illusion that he is Freddie Mercury reincarnated. “There was only one Freddie. All I can do is bring his spirit back to the stage.” Critical reviews suggest he does that very well having performed his Queen tribute throughout Europe and North America. From Another One Bites the Dust to We Will Rock You tonight’s concert is guaranteed to get your heart pumping and your hands clapping!
June 30 from 9:30 – 10:00 pm at the Dam in Baysville
Hosted by Baysville Station 40 Fire Fighters, the Baysville Firefighters Fireworks show will take place at dusk (9:30pm) at the Dam in Baysville. Come by boat, car or on foot. Please give generously to help offset the cost of the fireworks so they can continue next year.
To celebrate Canada Day in Dwight, the SS Bigwin will be offering complimentary boat cruises starting at Dwight Beach from 10am-3pm! Also enjoy an outdoor BBQ on the Beach from 11am-2pm, brought to you by the Hillside, Oxtongue Lake, Dwight (H.O.L.D.) Community Group.
Oxtongue Lake’s Canada Day Celebration
July 1 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Oxtongue Lake Community Centre
While actual festivities vary slightly year to year, there is always something of interest for both young and old. Activities can include a celebration of the arts, musical interludes, children’s activities, clowns, balloon blowing, hot-dogs, cake and, of course, singing of O’Canada. So dress up in your red & white and come on out to have some family fun.
Paul Reddick has long been apart of Canada’s rich roots music scene. He is one of the best harmonica players in the country. His distinctive voice covers a wide emotional palette, always engaging, sometimes a shout, more often a conversationally vivid whisper. But it is Reddick’s songs — sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, always thought-provoking and rarely sentimental — and the passionate way he delivers them that best illustrate what the influential British magazine Mojo described as his “wayward brilliance”. In the real world, he has been nomianted for Junos and Blues Music Awards and he is a seven-time Maple Blues Award winner. And he continues to tour — across Canada and the United State, with two or three trips a year to Europe — with his hard-hitting band.
