The Canadian Big Band Celebration Weekend is about to start

The Canadian Big Band weekend in Saugeen Shores is only days away.

The weekend begins on Thursday, September 14th, with the Musical ‘The Night Guy came to Town‘ at the Southampton Town Hall.

The 1935 Night will be replicated with local residents acting the parts of their family members and local musicians performing as the Guy Lombardo Royal Canadians. The ‘interactive evening’ will include audience participation so dig out those dancing shoes and join in the fun.
