With July fast approaching, the Gananoque Rotary Club and Lions Club, together with the River Rat Rally, are busy preparing for the 1000 Islands Family Ribfest, an event filled with non-stop entertainment, great food, and rare & unique crafts. The event officially kicks off with a grand celebration on the 1st of July, Thursday. The Club and the RRR will be hosting a couple of events throughout the weekend with the help of other organizations from the community who’ve donated funds for Ribfest.
The Gananoque Legion will be kicking things off on Thursday, with a color party and opening ceremonies at 12:45 in the afternoon. That will be followed by a performance by the Lions Steel Drum Band at 1:15 in the afternoon, with free food and drinks for the public. Up next is Dreams in Motion, who will be providing activities for the kids, with a climbing wall and puppet show for them to have fun with.
And that’s just Thursday we’re talking about. The whole weekend is jam-packed with events for the entire family. Already residents are buzzing with excitement for Ribfest.
