Canada Day Countdown

There’s lots to do this year to support Shinerama at the Canada Day countdown

Our Shine committee is ready to welcome you to the Canada Day countdown festivities for fun and excitement as we raise money and awareness for this very worthy cause!

Stiletto Stampede (Heats are on the half hour, from 2pm – 6pm) COST: FREE

This is an entertaining and fun event that gets you racing…literally. We will take groups on the hour and have them race up the boardwalk in Stilettos. At the end of each heat, the winner will receive a prize and a group photo will be taken of those who participated!

You’ll find the photos posted on our Facebook page:

Mechanical Bull (From 2pm, onward) COST: Minimum $5 donation

Can you handle the bull? If you’re up for the challenge, come down and take a ride on the mechanical bull throughout the evening. It’s a minimum $5 donation and proceeds will go towards UNB Saint John’s Shinerama campaign.

100 Squares 50/50 draw (From 2pm – 10pm) COST: Minimum $5 donation

Visit us at Shine HQ throughout the afternoon and get your 50/50 square! We will sell 100 squares, so if you’re the winner you could take home $250 bucks in cold hard cash!

Gourmet Barbecue (From 11pm – 2am *While Supplies Last*) COST: Minimum $2 donation

Party in style and eat in style while you celebrate the birth of our great country! The Shinerama committee will be running a barbecue beginning at 11pm, so grab some grub from us while you enjoy the great live entertainment and beverages from the great vendors of Market Square.
