Local musicians to perform at Haliburton’s Rotary Carnival

The Rotary Carnival this Wednesday Aug. 8 will feature music performed by local bands in Head Lake Park starting at 3 p.m.

Andy Salvatori organizer and Rotarian said adding music to the event would give carnival-goers more to do as they enjoy the rest of the carnival which features a midway beef on a bun Rotary Crown and Anchor Wheel and fireworks at dusk.

Scott Duggan and Friends/The Charlie Spills Experiment; Rick Stamp and Friends; Nick Russell and Benton Brown; Gary and the Rough Ideas; and Wescali have all been confirmed to play. Music starts at 3 p.m. with the last band taking the stage at 9 p.m.

If response to live music is positive Salvatori said the Rotary Club may organize music next year as well.

Admission is free.

The Rotary Carnival is also your last chance to buy tickets to win a 2018 Camaro LT Coupe or $30000 cash. The winning ticket will be drawn after the fireworks.
