INNISFIL - Friday Harbour Resort is celebrating all things Italian this Civic Holiday Weekend, August 3 to 5, with a special weekend-long festival: Harbourfest – Viva l’Italia.

Supercars like Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo as well as Ducati motorcycles will be featured as part of a luxury car show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday. In addition, a variety of family-friendly activities will take place throughout the weekend, including a mini circuit race track, build-a-buddy, face painting, and a K’Nex car building challenge.

On Saturday at 9:30 p.m. a spectacular fireworks display will light up the sky over the marina with prime viewing spots at the pier, boardwalk and beach. For those seeking Sunday night entertainment, there will be a screening of Back to the Future at 8:30 p.m. outside on the pier with free popcorn!

A stellar lineup of performers will be set up at our Pier stage including Kenn Lewis Steel Band, The Tavares Band, Lauren Knowles, Coldjack Band, Claudio Santaluce, Lisa Hutchinson and Jeff Eager who has shared the stage with Lenny Kravitz.

Beach goers can grab lakeside bites at the Beach Club Window. Food trucks will be serving up delicious offerings along the boardwalk all weekend long, along with Bruno’s Bakery who will serve up cannoli, and Bardstormer Brewing who will offer tastings of their signature brews. The Pier Bar will feature special Italian menu items like spicy Italian sausage, a loaded Italian panini, and the Italian specialty, Speducci.
