‘Scaled-down’ WAMBO scheduled for Thanksgiving Weekend

The Board of Directors for the Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing (WAMBO) are announcing a scaled-down version of their event, scheduled for Thanksgiving Weekend 2021.

“We are looking forward to keeping the spirits up in the community, by bringing a scaled-down version of WAMBO to Wallaceburg, in hopes to get back to a full fledged event in 2022,” said Bill Wolsing, WAMBO’s chair, in a media release.

“With the impacts of the pandemic still lingering, WAMBO will look a bit different this year. There won’t be a refreshment tent, food vendors, or many other activities our community loves due to logistical reasons, but we’ll have a few staples for everyone to enjoy.”

Activities scheduled to take place, include:

Saturday, October 9, 2021

– The Final Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market of 2021 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

– The Annual WAMBO Classic Car Show, Including Fire Trucks & Motorcycles (Time TBA)

– LIVE Musical Entertainment (Time/Location/Lineup TBA)

“Boaters are welcome to come dock in the downtown core along the Sydenham River, understanding the time of year may make it difficult, but we encourage people to come by water and enjoy the day. We also encourage everyone to support our local restaurants and licensed establishments during the event,” Wolsing said.

“It is also exciting to partner with the Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market and the Downtown Wallaceburg BIA this year, as they wrap-up another incredibly successful season.”

COVID-19 protocols will be in place for all WAMBO activities this year, Wolsing said.

The upcoming WAMBO Golf Classic, scheduled for Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Hidden Hills Golf and Country Club, is also SOLD-OUT.

More details will be released on WAMBO’s Facebook Page in the coming weeks prior to Thanksgiving Weekend.
