Since the return of Campbell’s Bay’s Summer Festival, organizers have sought to make it bigger, more entertaining, and attractive to the whole family – and this year may be their hardest to top yet.
Running from Friday through Sunday afternoon, the amount of activities jampacked into one weekend was extraordinary, with something new happening nearly every hour.
Friday started in the evening with a Pontiac youth softball league game at 6 p.m., opening the flood gates for much more fun. Soon after, face painting, the three-pitch tourney, and soap box races started up, along with the ever-entertaining dunk tank started up. Later on, DJ’s would keep the party pumping, with a homerun derby running into the night.
Saturday started with a little bit of everything, from the continuing baseball tournament at 8:30 a.m., there was some yoga happening down at the river, inflatable structures towering alongside the recreation association building, animal shows, the baby zone, balloon art, a fastball exhibition game, performances by bands and solo acts, visits by superheroes, a craft show and more.
