Victoria Day Weekend is Coming!

Come on out and enjoy the weekend with your friends and family from Bethany this 2014 Victoria Day Long Weekend!!  We have all of our traditional events occuring this year as well as a return to Classic Community Fun!  We have rented 3 inflatables and we have a selection of classic carnival games with prizes for all.  Face It Face Painting is back, Christy will have her booth set up Friday night with all of her excellent art!  A new addition to our Friday evening is Razberry the Clown who will have her booth set up for her balloon creations.  Please continue to check this post as the weekend approaches.  We are working to add events to our list, and as they are approved we will update this list to reflect new additions.

Kidz Karnival Party Rentals has worked out a great package for us to rent 2 large bouncy castles with slides and a large bouncy obstacle course for the entire long weekend.  All 3 items are current T.S.S.A certified and registered.  We also will have a selection of carnival games, built by our board and community members with prizes for everyone. 
The BAS will have tickets for the bouncy castles and games for $0.50 each and tickets are good for all games and inflatables all weekend long.
We have Request DJ Services coming back, ready to keep you dancing all night Friday and Saturday, and our Saturday Slo-Pitch tournament roster is almost filled!  Adults & teams interested in Slo-Pitch games/tournaments throughout the summer please e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  The Show & Shine is revving up to have the park full of beautiful classic cars again this year, and its time to think about getting your pets ready for the Pet Show on Sunday, and your floats ready for Monday's Parade.

The Pie & Cake Contest has been modified slightly this year with all new, exciting Cash Grand Prizes above and beyond our usual prizes!  Also there are now 7 static categories that anyone can enter, the only subdivision being age groups.  Children 9 and under, Youth 10 - 18, and Adults 19 & up can bake their delicious specialties in any of the following categories: Cheesecake, Decorated Cake, Single Crust Pie, Double Crust Pie, Decorated Cupcake, Cookies, or Bars & Squares.  Judging criteria has returned to the traditional style.

A special event for our Monday roster this year is the Children's Fun Activity Day.  Mr. Edwin Challice has organized a selection of non-competitive group games and activites for children aged 4 to 12.  Mr. Challice has been a member of the Bethany community for his entire life and not only was very active with youth softball, but he was also a school teacher here for a number of years.  This event used to be a feature following the parade, and we are excited to work with Mr. Challice to bring it back!  

Come on out to this year's events and start the summer off with loads of fun for everyone!

Please Note: Our collection bin for the Daily Bread Food Bank is back!  All weekend long there will be a bin in the pavillion to accept non-perishable food donations and supplies for local families.  Help us to help our community!!  All donations will be delivered at the end of the weekend to the Bethany United Church to be made available to our local residents.

Remember all proceds from this event go to help support the on-going maintenance & youth sports offerings at the Bethany Park.  All donations are welcome, and appreciated.

Spring is on its way!

Well Bethany community members, it is now March and even though we still have a lot of snow on the ground the BAS is already gearing up for this summer's activities! 

This year the BAS has really been putting our efforts into bringing old-fashioned fun back to our Long Weekend Celebration.  As exciting as the large carnival companies are, our community just hasn't had any luck with them.  This year we are returning to a simpler form of fun with games made by our own community members with prizes for all, plus 2 big bouncy castles and an obstacle course courtesy of Kidz Karnival Party Rentals in Peterborough.  Our rental fee has been paid and the dates are confirmed!!  Tickets will be sold at the Canteen by the BAS for $0.50 each and they will be accepted for all games and bouncy castles/obstacle course. 


(Note: Inflatable theme or colour shown in photos may be different from delivered inflatable - however size & style (2 large castles with slide and 1 obstacle course,) will be the same.)

We also have another event that isn't so new!  A great event from the past is returning to the Bethany Long Weekend Celebration!!  Mr. Edwin Challice will be hosting a 2 hour, non-competetive Children's Fun Day on the Monday after the parade returns to the Park.  There will be a series of interactive, fun, and team building games organized for children ages 4 to 12.  The children will be fully supervised and enjoying themselves while the Pie & Cake contest and auction are occurring.


Softball season is starting to get rolling again and we have opened up the online registration form!  Registrations are open until the end of May, but scheduling happens in early May so register soon to get the season off to a great start!  So far its looking like it will be another fantastic season and we have many parents and volunteers looking to come and help out.  Thank you all so much for helping keep our youth softball league available for our children!!  We couldn't do it without all of your help!  Anyone who is interested in helping out, please contact Mike at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
