We got in touch with the festival organizer to learn more about the event:
Where and when does the festival start? The first event is a dinner anyone can attend at the Brockberry at 6pm on Thursday!
Where does the name “Red Hot and Blue”, come from? The name comes from the name of the first radio station to ever play an Elvis Presley song.
What do I need to know about the cycling scavenger hunt? The registration will take place before the hunt in the main tent at Hardy Park. The event starts at 9am on Saturday, September 2nd and will take you to 10 locations around downtown Brockville.
Can I buy a Red Hot and Blue T-shirt? Yes, they will be for sale in multiple locations!
Will any roads be closed for the event? Kincaid Street will be closed on Saturday and Sunday but all the main streets will stay open.
What if it rains? Every event goes rain or shine, so pack for the weather!
