Founders’ Day/Urban Slide
Founders’ Day 2016 is going to be EPIC! With a gigantic slip n slide, great street entertainment including a talent show, a super sidewalk sale, and a Caribbean Festival on Mill Street, downtown Orangeville is going to be the place to be on July 23rd!
The fun begins with the Farmers’ Market at 8:00 am and the Shining Stars Talent Show at 9:00 am on the Toms Martial Arts Performance at Broadway & Mill Street. The day ramps up from there when the Urban Slide opens at 10 am and the Carib Festival begins on Mill Street at 11 am.
Founders’ Day wouldn’t be the same without extended patios, live street performers and great sales, so we have those too! Be on the lookout for our roving buskers who will be entertaining visitors all day long. From insane fire shows to crazy jugglers and astounding magic acts, the non-stop action will keep everyone entertained. Be sure to take advantage of Orangeville Hydro’s free boom truck rides at Broadway & First Street from 10 am – 2 pm and let the kids enjoy some free fun at various kid friendly spots along the way . Mill Street is the place to get your groove on with steel drum bands, dancers, artisans, cooking demos and great food so don’t forget to make your way down towards Soulyve!
Of course, the 1000 ft Urban Slide is going to be the attracting crowds from far and wide so be sure to order your tickets in advance on line at theurbanslide.ca or at Readers’ Choice on Broadway (cash only). Pack some sunscreen and a towel and be prepared for a super wet, super fun day! For more information on the slide and ticket prices, please visit theurbanslide.ca.
