Gallery: Is there anything more beautiful than community? Valley East Days makes us wonder

Events continue today with fireworks at dusk

This is how you enjoyed Valley East Days on Saturday, Greater Sudbury. 

You had fun with firefighters from Greater Sudbury Fire Services, you cheered young musical talent under a big tent, and at the Snap Fitness Challenge you showed the world that you are strong. 

You dared to ride a mechanical bull in support of the pediatric treatment room at Health Sciences North. Nickel Belt MP Marc Serré competed against veteran miners in the King Miner Contest where some of Greater Sudbury’s best mining talent showed their skills and costume animals mingled with Sudbury Wolves mascot Howler, offering innumerable high fives to kids and to each other. It was a great day.

The 43rd annual Valley East Days is bigger and better than ever before and droves have come out to enjoy all it has had to offer.

The final day of family events continues today with the Classic Car Show beginning at 11 a.m., Stars of Pop tributes and country music take the main stage beginning at noon and a free public swim will be offered at Howard Armstrong Recreational Centre (HARC) at 2:30 p.m.. Breakfast brunch buffet and spaghetti dinner will be hosted at Cousin Vinny’s restaurant from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m. respectively.

Fireworks begin at the Howard Armstrong Centre at dusk. 

All are welcome to enjoy. Transit from Sudbury to Hanmer is being provided by Greater Sudbury free of charge from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and shuttle services are being provided without cost from HARC to the Hanmer Shopping Centre from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Admission is free.
