It's shaping up to be a very busy weekend in Springhill as the Cumberland County Cool Blues celebrate Old Home Week with a party.

The second annual BluesFest celebration kicks off Friday at the Lions Park and Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Community Centre and continues through Sunday with activities for all ages.

"Last year's event was a huge success and it helped raise a lot of money to support the team," organizing committee member Heather Trenholm said.

Events begin on Friday with an amateur jam night in the park featuring local musicians singing around a giant bonfire. There will be refreshments available and the event is limited to those age 19 and over.

Saturday will be a family day in the park with entertainment throughout the day as well as cotton candy and slushies for the children and a dunk tank. There will also be a driving simulator on hand for people test their driving skills under certain conditions.

One of the highlights of the weekend will be the Springhill Old Home Week parade at 2 p.m. while there'll be bingo in the arena at 3 p.m.

There's also a washer toss tournament in the park while a co-ed slo-pitch tournament will begin Friday and run through the weekend.

Festivities for the day wrap up with a beer garden at 9 p.m. while the slo-pitch tourney wraps up on Sunday.
