The Front Street Frolic is a new event started last year that the St.Johns Ambulance attended as the first aid booth! It is august 1st from 6-9pm but we would like if you guys could come a little earlier to just get set up if you need the extra time. It is a street festival that celebrates diversity among the community, promotes downtown business, and encourages the community to work together. The Frolic has a stage for bands to play, food and store vendors, potentially a bouny tent among other things! It is a fun event for people of all ages, races, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and backgrounds to come together to enjoy and celebrate who they are.

There will be 12 games in the tournament for the Mosquito aged children (10-11 years old) with lots of spectators expected!

We would ideally need at least 1 volunteer per game. Volunteers will have their own first aid tent. As hosting the tournament is costly, we are expecting some profits from canteen sales and can provide a donation to St.John's Ambulance pending our final numbers. We are more than happy to support St.John's ambulance in any other way we can, please just let us know.
