There was no doubt that the Bruce Power BLOCk PARTY new format was a hit. Originally, the Bruce Power Beach Party, it was held at Port Elgin Beach every second year however, this year Bruce Power decided to change things up and move UP town.
While there were reservations about the idea, it apparently was a popular move. According to many young parents with young children, the new format and location provided more entertainment for their children. From circus rides to face-painting and balloon artistry to the special ‘cirque du soleil’ style show held in the Missionary Church building, it was a complete family event.
In addition, moving the entire event to the central uptown area, did not hinder the attendance at the fireworks held that night at the Port Elgin Harbour as thousands turned out to take in the show.
