BLOCK PARTY D O W N T O W N Join us on Broadway for hot entertainment acts and the biggest party of the year! T he 2016 Turtlefest Block Party will kick off with Mayor Stephen

“His performance last year was phenomenal and combined skate- boarding, fire-breathing, fire jug- gling and even LED light tricks.” Joining Brant will be fellow busk- ers Tim Holland (a.k.a. The Puppet Tamer ), John Park (a.k.a. The Fun- ny Waiter ), and even one absurdly large chef. (Trust us, you’ll under- stand when you see him.) Hungry? Irene Hurley and the staff at Hurley’s Mattress and Ap- pliance will fire up the grill begin- ning at 4:00 p.m., in support of the BIA’s various Downtown Beautifi- cation projects. The store parking lot will also be the site for an outdoor basketball game featuring the Till- sonburg Firefighters at 6:15 p.m.

If you’d rather shoot your own hoops, head back up Broadway for Full Court Press , a giant inflatable game that will test your basketball free throw ability. Think you’re good at soccer? Try being attached by a tether to your teammates in Human Foosball and see what happens. For animal lovers, there are sev- eral booths that will help you get closer to nature. Thanks to the gen- erosity of local dentist, Dr. Michael Nguyen, Hands On Exotics will be bringing an assortment of furry friends to the party, including a live kangaroo . Or, if creepy crawly things are more your speed, be sure to slither over to the Tillsonburg Town Cen-

Molnar handing out delicious cup- cakes during the Metro Opening Ceremonies , but from there, the eve- ning promises to only get sweeter. “We’re so excited to have Brant Matthews (a.k.a. FireGuy ) back with us,” explains Virginia Armstrong, Executive Director of the Business Improvement Association.
