There is always something to do in Thunder Bay


THUNDER BAY – There is always something to do in Thunder Bay. Today, don’t forget, today is the HOPE FOR MALAWI yard sale & BBQ at 191 Marlborough. Come on out any time between 8am and 2pm.

They are not going to be pricing anything, just come and browse and grab the things that you’d like and then tell them how much you want to pay for them! All proceeds will be going to help the clinic as well as other projects that HOPE FOR MALAWI have started, or will be starting on this next trip. See you at the yard sale!!

There will also be coffee and a BBQ along with other games & activities for children, live music & other surprises! Maybe even a celebrity guest or two…

Come one, come all, (then maybe come again) and bask in the ferocity of Thunder Bay’s, Winnipeg/ Brandon’s, Montreal’s and Ottawa’s finest queens hitting to the stage one unforgettable night only.

This event is hosted by the legendary GIA and (no ifs, ands or buts) PALOMA MARQUEZ… and will be MC’d by ROCK 94’s DEE. How could it get more fabulous? By having DESTINY, ISIS, JULIA COCO MANGO and (as if it that’s not enough) ANIKA MARQUEZ performing along with GIA and PALOMA. Upon all this, a donation will be made to AIDS THUNDER BAY from this event.

Every year on the third Sunday in July, people all around Lake Superior celebrate Lake Superior Day, which is a day set aside for residents and visitors to appreciate their connection to the world’s largest freshwater lake. Families, groups, communities, businesses, and First Nations members hold special events or activities to educate people about the need to protect and restore the watershed’s natural environment.

Bring your blanket and picnics and enjoy a great day down at the marina! Be sure to bring some extra change … food vendors on site; Poppin Hut, Twisted Ice Cream, Corn on the cob with Grinning Belly, Fox on the Run, Ago’s Meatballs, Ja Jo’s Mini Donuts.
