Festival of the Giant 2013

Help us host the Festival this year. The Festival is happening August 9th, 10th and 11th. The Ontario Rangers have been an important part of the Festival for years. Due to loss of government funding this program no longer exists. We need twelve volunteers to replace the Rangers and help us with the fun activities for children, adults, and families that make the Festival such a success every year. If you can help on any or all days of the Festival please contact Barbara at bcoomes@shaw.ca or 767-5927.
