The Town of Perth will be in full celebration mode on Friday, June 30 when the Party by the Basin kicks off the Canada 150th celebrations in downtown.
This never-before-done event at the Tay Basin will close down the Crystal Palace parking lot to host an outdoor celebration including three bands, a 12-vendor food market hosted by the Midnight Makers, cold brew from the Perth Brewery, a wine and drink table run by the Stewart Park Festival committee and samples from Top Shelf Distillers.
The music line-up includes the Keith Glass Band, Juno-award-nominated artist JW-Jones and two-time Juno-award winners MonkeyJunk. A stage will be set up in front of the Crystal Palace and the party will take place in the Basin parking lot. The gates will open at 5 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m.
