BRINSTON — A pig roast and antique vehicle show are featured Oct. 1 at Matilda Memorial Park.

Running 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the free family event is hosted by the newly formed local recreation committee overseeing the Municipality of South Dundas-owned park in Brinston.

Charges only apply to the meal, canteen and photo booth, organizers say.

The event is being held as the Matilda Memorial Recreation Committee spearheads and raises funds for a number of capital improvements at the facility. 

The classic vehicles of the Golden Gears Club will be joined by displays of antique tractors and snowmobiles. Children should enjoy the bouncy castles, bubbles in the park, games, face painting, a scarecrow contest, crafts and more.

Live music is featured throughout the day, along with prizes and a silent auction. Almost everything at the event has been donated, according to organizers.

Lunch is available from noon until 2 p.m. and includes pork on a bun, salad, baked beans and a drink. The canteen will have other treats available, including hot dogs.

The committee is also hosting a logo contest, open to students of Seaway DHS.  Learn more at their Facebook page, their website or follow them on Twitter.

Donations are always welcome to help improve the park, they say.
