AUDIO: Large Crowds Expected For Annual Sunsplash Festival In Belle River

Sunsplash weekend is here.

The annual event put on by the  Belle River on the Lake Business Improvement Association, kicks off Thursday evening at Lakeview Park.

Over the four days, there will be a classic car show, a carnival, live entertainment, watercross races, lawnmower races and a parade.

This year's event will also include a shuttle service from the Atlas Tube Centre, says Office and Special Events Co-ordinator, Janel Gagnier

"They can park at the Atlas Tube Centre down by the new tennis courts there and take just like a 10 minute ride right to the park and get dropped off there," she says. "So that's going to be running like every 15 minutes or so." 

As Lakeshore grows, Gagnier says the event also continues to grow.

"It's a good thing for our community, it's a good thing for Essex County as well right because people can come from different areas and see all the great things Belle River has to offer."   

According to Gagnier, activities are also taking place at Belle River District High School and West Belle River Beach.

The event starts at 5pm Thursday and wraps up on Sunday at 6pm.
