Frontenactivity Festivalby Teresa Wick, Mary Van Impe, Amanda Spark and Carolyn Hall
On Saturday April 21st from 10am until 3pm, the first annual Frontenactivity Festival will be taking place at the Sharbot Lake High School. The event is intended for individuals of all ages and fitness levels. The Frontenactivity Festival will provide the opportunity for the community to come together to learn about local programs and the benefits of physical activity. The festival will include educational booths (i.e. The Running Goat, Kingston Gets Active, The Diabetes Association, etc.), and demonstrations of local activities (i.e. Tai Chi, Line Dancing, Yoga, Karate, Qi Gong, etc.). There will also be opportunities to participate in fun activities throughout the day, such as a Nature Walk (led by Shirley Peruniak and Kathy Martin), a Tug-of-War and an obstacle course (run by Rudy Hollywood and Doug Steele). There will be entertainment from local bands (i.e. Strat Cats, Arden Glee Club, etc.), food available for purchase from local vendors (i.e. the Sharbot Lake Farmers Market), and the festival will culminate in a run/walk event.

The event is sponsored by the Central Frontenac Township, and is also in partnership with the Lions Club, Tri Rudy, NFCS, Sharbot Lake High School, and Northern Connections.
This will be an event to remember… so come on out and have fun getting active!
