Get ready for another action packed weekend with the Summerland Action Festival set to go on May 31, June 1 and 2.
An expected crowd of 15,000 will come to our town to take part in the festivities.
The festival is built around the Man of Steel Triathlon and Giant’s Head Run and the Slo-Pitch Ball Tournament, with 72 teams competing.
This year’s headliner will be the Led Zeppelin Show sponsored by the Summerland I.G.A.
The band will appear on the Timbermart Entertainment Stage at 9 p.m. on Friday evening with the fireworks brought to you by H and M excavating, going off as the band plays on, sometime after 10.
Saturday activities include the Fortis B.C. Action Festival Parade at 10 a.m. and dancing the night away to the ever popular March Hare, at the Summerland Arena.
A change from last year will be no free taxi rides after the dance.
“Unfortunately it was to difficult to organize and co-ordinate,” said Pat Bell.
Sunday starts with an 8 a.m. Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast followed by an Interdenominational Church Service. The Kids’ Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Summerland Sportsman’s Association will be held at Garnett Valley Dam at 11 a.m.
The feature performance on Sunday afternoon will be the Abba Again tribute band starting at 3 p.m.
Along with these highlights there will be lots of other entertainment on stage and in the park each day. Funtastic Inflatables will keep the children busy, with the Beverage Gardens sponsored by the Kinsmen and K40 Clubs drawing an adult crowd. Food and craft vendors will also be in attendance.
All in all, if the weather co-operates, expect to see another successful Action Festival in Summerland.
