On July 16, the 13th annual Bruce Power Beach Party, at Port Elgin’s Main Beach, was the best yet, with about 6,000 people enjoyed family fun, food, music, games, bouncy castles, superheroes, a princess show, rock climbing and a spectacular fireworks show over the harbour at dusk.
The event couldn’t have happened without the amazing help of over 80 volunteers, consisting of Bruce Power pensioners, employees and high school students collecting volunteer hours.
One of the highlights of the day was the Saugeen First Nation Drum Group who entertained people with their rhythmic and cultural drumming. After that, the Penetangore Pipe Band marched along the Main Beach promenade to the shoreline, while local band Midtown Cross entertained attendees in the main tent before the fireworks capped a spectacular day of events.
Bruce Power is always proud to show its appreciation and to give back to the local community, and the annual Beach Party exemplifies that commitment.
