Twenty local celebrities will put their skills to the test in CAA Niagara's first annual Distracted Driving Derby, Aug. 23 at the Pen Centre. They will pilot pedal cars through an obstacle course while trying to text and drive, apply make up and peel bananas.

"This is a fun event to draw attention to a very serious issue," says Peter Van Hezewyk, president of CAA Niagara. "Distracted drivers are three times more likely to crash. These community leaders have joined us to encourage drivers to put down the phone and avoid other distractions."

At SupperMarket on August 23rd, we welcome back crowd favourite Rusty Jacob.  They always put on a great show, entertaining with favourites from then and now.  Rancourt and Jackson Triggs wineries, The Exchange and Oast House, and Lowrey Bros. Cider will be open for business, and with our 20+ food vendors, there’s sure to be something that you haven’t had a chance to try yet this season!  There’s plenty of seating at one of our colourful picnic tables, or bring your own chairs and picnic blankets and find a spot on the grassy area.  Mom and dad can enjoy time socializing while the kids enjoy the FREE Kids’ Zone (with a non-perishable food donation for Newark Neighbours PLEASE)
