Saturday June 28, 2008
In keeping with the Biker's Fest theme we will be hosting award winning motorcycle author and journalist Max Burns. Max has been nominated for 10 Canadian National Magazine Awards, winning two gold, three silver, and five honorable mentions.
He also received four Motorcycle Awards of Excellence, in 1994 for The Winged Wheel Patch, 2003 for On Any Wednesday, 2004 for Around the Bend (again), and 2006 for These are a few of my favourite roads.
Check Out Max's Site
Max will be on hand, chatting and signing books. He will also be presenting From the books of Max, where he talks about his writing, his adventures, his books, and whatever else he wants to. Refreshments will be served following the presentation, from Boreal Cuisine, with plenty of time to chat with Max and keep him busy so that he doesn't eat everything before you get a taste of the northern goodies. Good words, good food; what could be better? 4:00 pm - 6:00pm.
But - there's more than just bikers to see June 27-28. Summerfest is offering up some great family friendly fun downtown. Come see Clifford the big red dog at 11:00am in store. There is entertainment on the main stage all day Friday and Saturday - circus performers, face painting, skateboard comp, sidewalk sales - tons of stuff to see and do! Come down town and check it out!! All sponsored by your local NewLikseard BIA.
