Bruce Power will celebrate summer a little differently this year when it moves its annual party from the beach to downtown Port Elgin.

In a media release, Bruce Power Block Party will be held on Saturday, July 21 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and will feature a free family midway and inflatables, clown balloon artists, face painting, and performances by the Zacada Circus Show, which is operated by former Cirque du Soleil artists and features hand balancers, acrobats, and aerialists. Performances will be held in the Port Elgin Missionary Church, at 650 Green Street at noon, 1:30, 3 and 4:30 p.m. There is limited seating for each show, so plan to arrive early.

Free carnival food will be available while supplies last including pogos from noon to 2 p.m., cotton candy from 1 to 3 p.m., ice cream from 2 to 4 p.m. and popcorn at the Zacada performances.

The event, which will be held in the Bricker and Green Street area of downtown Port Elgin, will culminate with a stunning fireworks display at the Port Elgin Main Beach at dusk.

“The Block Party promises to be an exciting afternoon of entertainment for the whole family,” said Chris Mercanti, Bruce Power’s Manager of Community Relations. “We look forward to this opportunity to get together with our employees and the community to celebrate and to offer our thanks for the incredible support we receive across the region.”
