Splashdown and Big Bad Marty Band to Highlight Blackville Days
This years Blackville Days celebration will take place on Saturday, July 18. Join us as we celebrate living in this amazing village!
The day kicks off with the Annual Splashdown hosted by the Blackville Fireman’s Club. The river run begins at noon at the Mouth of the Cains River and ends at Blackville Park. A halfway barbeque will be held at McKenzie Brook along the way. Registration will be held prior to the run at the starting point, along with poker hands being sold. Prizes will be given for the best hand and random draws will be held. More details to follow.
There will be live local entertainment at the Blackville Municipal Park on Saturday afternoon, with times to be announced.
Saturday night the park will be rockin’ with The Big Bad Marty Band and beer gardens. The Big Bad Marty Band is known as one of the premiere Maritime cover/corporate bands. They are a very high tempo, high energy and fun band to enjoy live.
