Carrotfest is happening this weekend – we have been doing this event since 2008 and it is one of our busiest events! If you missed out on pre-registration there are 15 spots available per wave for on-site registration. We recommend getting there early on Saturday morning to avoid disappointment. Registration opens at 8am. We will only be allowing registration for the Big Air wave on Sunday on Sunday. You can not register on Saturday for the Big Air wave on Sunday.
The pool is set-up in the Bradford Community Centre parking lot (125 Simcoe St.). Crating is in the usual location (along the tennis courts on grass).
We still can use volunteers for this event as it is our busiest event of the year. Our volunteers help keep our events running without a hitch and on-time! If you are not sure how to do a volunteer job just ask and we will be happy to show you the ropes. Our volunteer sign-up list can be viewed here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0A4BA4A92DAA8-carrotfest
If anyone is interested in helping out with set-up we will be beginning at 12:30pm on Friday August 17th.
Getting there Saturday morning
Please note that competitors will need to enter at the west entrance to the Community Centre parking lot. You can come in this entrance, unload, then you must turn around in the space provided and park either on Simcoe St or go around to the north road above the ball diamonds to park. There is NO parking near the pool as all parking lots are full with the midway and vendors. There is no cost for parking.
Because of road closures on Saturday, getting to the Community Centre will require some creative driving. If you are coming from the west (Hwy 400) you can take Cty R 88 to Collings Ave, turn left onto Maplegrove, left onto Luxury then left again onto Simcoe St. The entrance will be on your right. If you are coming from the east (Yonge St.) you must turn left on Morris St then left on Centre St. Continue to Simcoe St and turn left (south). The entrance will be on your left. Or, you can turn left on William St and follow it out to Simcoe St.
For GPS users here is the address:
125 Simcoe St., Bradford, Ontario
