Bruce Power is planning to take over Kincardine’s Reunion Park this July for its annual beach party celebrations.

The company alternates the location of its annual summer party among the municipalities it supports. This year, it’s Kincardine’s turn again.

“We’re doing this to thank the people who support us,” said organizer Judi Chambers.

Beginning at 6 p.m. on July 18, Bruce Power is offering a free night of family fun on the beach. Proposed activities include volleyball, children’s games, free food and fireworks. More than 3,000 people are expected to attend.

Local environmentalist Carol Blake is one of the organizers. Over the last few years, Bruce Power has tried to reduce the environmental impact of the event and with Blake’s help, it’s expected this year will be even more environmentally-friendly.

Bruce Power plans to use recycled products and will have compost facilities on site to handle waste. A free shuttle service will also be set up to minimize the number of vehicles on the roads.

The event is still in its preliminary planning stages but Kincardine council gave organizers its approval to host the event in the municipality.

“We all look forward to the party,” said mayor Larry Kraemer.

More details will be released as planning for the event continues.
