Quarry Days returns late this summer with attractions and fun for all ages.
The weekend kicks off with music, fireworks, and dancing to get spirits lively. “There’s really something for everybody all weekend,” Tanya Swanson, one of the committee members for Quarry Days, says. “The entertainment is really fantastic. It’s a really family friendly weekend and it’s a great opportunity for people to come and check out our community.”
The Violet Lilies, a female music duo from Stonewall, open the mainstage Friday evening at the Veteran Memorial Sports Complex. Canadian country artist Jake Matthews, who blends a unique combination of traditional and modern country sounds, is the headliner.
Matthews’s set will be followed by fireworks, and then the musical momentum will pick up again as Past the Perimeter takes the stage in the beer gardens outside the Stonewall Legion for some country-fuelled rock.
There will also be shows Saturday and Sunday at the free stage on Main Street outside the Legion.
The Wonder Shows midway starts Friday and runs until Sunday. There will also be street vendors, the beer gardens, a show-and-shine car show, a Legion-hosted pancake breakfast, a “million dollar hole-in-one”, a parade, a petting zoo, and a slo-pitch tournament that will be going on all weekend in Quarry Park.
