Unique handmade, high quality crafts and food products can be found in several large marquee tents and booths lining the street.  Enjoy performances by local musicians and appearances by our friends from the Bowmanville Zoo.  There are plenty of things for the children to see and do, including carnival rides, jumping castles, pony rides, and more.
