The festival features attractions for the whole family, including: horse drawn sleigh rides, live entertainment, indoor skating, vendors, food, face painting, an indoor beer garden for the adults in attendance, and of course the demolition derby put on by Impact Motorsports, which includes four different classes of competitors.
The festival begins at 11am until 2pm; when the demolition derby starts. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-12. Children under 5 are free.
Steven Waters of The Blackstock Agricultural Society is looking forward to what he believes will be a big event.
“We're hoping for around 50 derby vehicles. Classes we have are: full size trucks, full size cars. pro modified mini. and new to Blackstock, a youth mini class, with drivers aged 14-16 years of age”, said Waters.
The Blackstock Winter Festival is put together entirely by volunteers and the Blackstock Fair Board.
“I would like to thank the Township of Scugog and the Roads Department for all of their support, as well as the Scugog Fire Department and to all the volunteers with the Blackstock Fair Board”, said Waters. “I would also like to thank our various sponsors: All Flags Auto, Durham Transmission Service, Asselstine’s Country Yamaha, Cartwright Karate, and Cozy Home Heating & Air Conditioning. This event wouldn't be made possible without their support.”
Money raised at the festival will be used to help support the Blackstock Agricultural Society.
