One of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s most anticipated community celebrations of the year, the Virgil Stampede, is back in town starting this Saturday.

Held at the Virgil Sports Park, the annual festival features an amusement park and midway, pony rides, an outdoor food court, kids pavilion and much more fun for the whole family. 

It runs daily through to Victoria Day on Monday, ending with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.

Again this year, there will be pre-event wristband sales for $35 if purchased before the weekend. Sales are open now.

If purchased at the gate, they will cost $45. 

The bracelets are good from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Monday and can be bought online via the Stampede’s website, virgilstampede.ca, or at Your Independent Grocer in Virgil. 

Gates open on Sunday at 11 a.m.

It is important to remember that backpacks will not be allowed into the park this year.
