Friday night kicks off with a Pulled Pork Dinner by Knuckles Southern BBQ, the Wingham Hitmen Fastball vs Brussels Tigers, there will be Children’s Activities and live entertainment by Runaway Angel and Stacey Zegers Band. 

On Saturday, if you don’t have a boat in the Cardboard Boat Race, come on down and cheer on your favorite team as they “float their cardboard boats” down the Maitland River: Registration at 10am with the Mighty Maitland Regatta boat races from 11am-4pm.   If the Race, the Firefighter Games, the inflatables and the Live Entertainment throughout the day isn’t enough, we thought we would share some food items Knuckles BBQ and Southern Kitchen will be bringing to the park for lunch - Texas Style Beef Brisket Sandwich, Mac N Cheese with Pit Candy Bacon, Nathans Carolina Dawg (Hot Dog topped with Pulled Pork lathered in Tangy Carolina BBQ Sauce and Coleslaw).  This evening’s entertainment is Tommy Gilhem and The Chill Billys.
