Along with the yummy burgers and hot dogs – still a toonie including a drink – we’ll have Frontlines serving dessert treats as their fundraiser for summer camp.

Buskerfest & Theatre in the Park!

Buskerfest, hosted by the Weston Village BIA and your main street retailers, taking place on Saturday, July 28th beginning at 2pm and wrapping up at 6pm. There will be some earlier entertainment as well at the Weston Farmers’ Market from 9am to noon. Last year’s event, the first ever Buskerfest in Weston, was a huge success so they hope to have the same this year. The buskers are world-class and will include Weston’s own, Scott Jackson who is an award-winning beat-boxer. Super entertaining!

The next night on Sunday, July 29th is Theatre in the Park with the Driftwood Theatre Co. presenting their version of ‘As You Like It’ or ‘Rosalynde’ by Shakespeare in Little Avenue Memorial Park. Show begins at 7:30 but arrive early with a picnic to get a great seat! Last year’s show of ‘Othello’ was packed and it was great to see our lovely park well used.
