July 12th is the rain delay date.

Three generations of fans will gather in beautiful Bannerman Park for a time of fun for the whole family culminating in the Teddy Bear Man’s concert. Favourite songs and new ones are sure to get people (and bears) dancing and singing along.

This year the event will also debut a new feature “The Cool To Care!” corner where some of Terry’s young friends get to display some things they are doing to make the world a better place.

Well-loved Dylan Cag and friends have offered to do face painting for donations they receive at the picnic.

And as always, more than a dozen individuals will be there to take care of tasks such as the “lost grownups detail”, the “Teddy Bear’s Hospital”, “sidewalk safety” and more.

As well, you are encouraged to bring food items for the Salvation Army food bank program.

Tell your teddy bears to come out of hibernation and get out your picnic baskets.
