Warming Up For Canada Day 2015 Festivities
Aerosmith Rocks headlines Sunday @ Funtastic Music Festival as part of the 2015 Canada Day warm-up weekend. Aerosmith Rocsk brings their show to the North Vancouver Island region after making recent stops in Toronto & Regina.
27th annual Okee Dokee Slo-Pitch Tournament
The event is also the Island's largest slo-pitch tournament and will be the biggest Okee Dokee competition ever in Port Alberni, said Robertson.
Last year's event hosted 66 teams. The 2015 tournament pitches off at the Echo fields Saturday morning at 8 a.m. and continues all day until 7 p.m. Players hit the diamonds again Sunday morning for another full day of play. The finals take place on Monday at 3 p.m., and the tournament wraps up by about 5 p.m. It's also the first time Funtastic is hosting a country music night on Saturday night, with the Tumbling Dice from Victoria entertaining tournament players. A rock theme with tribute band Aerosmith Rocks will play on Sunday night.
