One of the events that I look forward to every year is Bobcaygeon's Midnight Madness. This year's edition takes place Saturday, August 3.
The fun starts at 7pm as local merchants and other vendors take to streets to help you with your retail therapy needs.
But it's not just about shopping. There's a Kids' Zone with inflatables and activities for all ages. This year, they include a Rock Climbing Wall, Inflatable Pirate Ship bouncer and Inflatable Ice Cream Truck Bouncer, face painting and, from the Bobcaygeon Curling Club, Street Curling.
You can also enjoy live music on the patio at Stewart Morrison Insurance and in the parking lot between Pick 'n' Save and Godfather's Pizza. As well, restaurants in the town will be open to help you rest between stops.
Bolton Street will be closed for the event, but there's lots of parking on the side streets within easy walking distance of the action. Merchants along King and Main Streets are also participating, so don't forget to take a stroll their way.
The Bobcaygeon Midnight Madness (BMM) Committee is comprised of volunteers and local merchants that dedicate their time each year to plan and organize this historic event for the community and tourists to enjoy.
This is a fun time out, especially if you're looking for some great deals.
