Q104 BIG SUMMER BASH - A RECORD-BREAKING SUMMER!

Q104 and Tourism Kenora invite you to be a part of a record-breaking summer!

On Saturday, July 27, 2019 on the Kenora Harbourfront we’re gathering 2,000 people to break a World Record - the largest gathering of people wearing plaid!

At noon, we will come together to celebrate the very fabric of our community – the Kenora Dinner Jacket and claim a world record, which is rightfully ours! (Kenora Dinner Jacket not required - any plaid will do!)

Bring your friends and family down to the Harbourfront for an afternoon of live entertainment, kids games, food trucks and prizes! The Lake of the Woods Hospital Foundation will also be on-site where you could win big with their 50/50 draw!

Wearing plaid in Northwestern Ontario is natural, so let’s claim our rightful place at the top of the world stage this summer!
