The Standard (Elliot Lake) - - NEWS/SPORTS -

El­liot Lake’s an­nual Ura­nium Her­itage Fes­ti­val saw a lot of heat, a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties and a dis­ap­point­ment.

The dis­ap­point­ment came on Satur­day just be­fore noon when the city was forced to can­cel the Ura­nium Her­itage Fes­ti­val pa­rade due to thun­der, light­ning and a brief but heavy shower.

Satur­day started off with a break­fast at the Ma­sonic Hall. There was a yard sale at the Collins Hall and the Sum­mer Art Fair at the Lester B. Pear­son Civic Cen­tre.

The Lions Club hosted a West­ern Jamboree and Bar­be­cue at the Collins Hall, where a Clas­sic Car Show took place.

Satur­day evening was the street dance fea­tur­ing El­liot Lake’s Shed Jam­mers and for­mer El­liot Lake res­i­dent Ce­line Tel­lier. A Lynyrd Skynyrd trib­ute band from Sud­bury per­formed and was wrapped up by Green River Re­vival, a Cree­dence Clear­wa­ter Re­vival trib­ute band from south­ern On­tario.

The El­liot Lake Beach Party was held at Spruce Beach with many tak­ing ad­van­tage of the wa­ter to cool down on such a hot day, in which tem­per­a­tures reached the mid 30s, with the hu­midex head­ing into the 40s.
