For 2019, entertainers include ventriloquist Norma McKnight, Steel School of Irish Dance and local Celtic-folk favourite Pat Chessell. Attractions include a giant obstacle course, paddleboats, trackless train and bouncy castles.

“Don’t forget to head inside to our Surrey Youth Talent Showcase where we will have local youth performing and showcasing all that Surrey youth have to offer. Applications are still open until Sept. 2.”
