Those heading to Mariners Park can also take in the Live Music, Trivia Testing, Contests and Games, Children's Face Painting, a distribution of Tree Seedlings and a glimpse at the past with some old fashioned games for Children to take part in.

While the supplies last the Girl Guides, Brownies and Cubs will be handing Canadian flags and pins to the public.
