Supercrawl organizers behind On the Bay festival offer 2 days of free music at Bayfront Park
Ticket holders 12 and up will have to show ID and proof they're fully vaccinated
A free, two-day festival offering music, food trucks and drag performances is coming to Hamilton's Bayfront Park.
It's a sort of Supercrawl, only done a little differently. The organizers behind the massive multi-arts event are teaming up with the Something Else! Festival for an event they're calling On the Bay.
It will take place Oct. 8 and 9, and offer performances by Tim Baker, Death from Above 1979, The Halluci Nation and more.
Organizers say all ticket holders 12 and over will be required to show proof they're fully vaccinated, along with matching ID, in line with provincial legislation.
They're also asking all ticket holders to maintain two metres of distance between themselves and anyone outside their household, and to wear masks except when eating or drinking.
JUST ANNOUNCED: Join us at Bayfront Park on Oct 8 & 9 for Supercrawl On the Bay. Catch some amazing talent, vendors, food trucks and more!
