"The Festival Board has once again worked extremely hard to bring great entertainment to the Lift-Off stage, and plenty of activity to Lamoureux Park throughout the day. The addition of the Seniors Bingo, The Minute To Win It contest, and the creation of the Family Zone, will certainly add to the family atmosphere of the festival."
