Quenching your Thirst: As usual, all kinds of refreshments are available for purchase on site.
But this year you can fill up your water bottle for free at a refilling station.
However, the bottle has to be empty when you you enter the site.
Weather: Keep updated on our www.cbc.ca/thunderbay website because it's looking iffy this weekend.
There's a chance of showers every day, with the possibility of thunderstorms.
Pack a raincoat or waterproof poncho — or at least a green/blue/clear garbage bag with a whole cut out for your head, if that's all you have.
But it could be sunny too, so bring a hat, sunscreen and your sunglasses.
