Liven up your August long weekend with Capreol Days. The annual festival runs Aug. 1-3, promising live entertainment, food, games for children, a sidewalk sale and more.

Everything kicks off on Friday with a fish fry at the Capreol Legion from 4-7 p.m. Saturday sees downtown Capreol play host to a farmers market and sidewalk sale, as well as live music, pony rides and a petting zoo for children.

At 10:30 a.m., M&R Grill hosts a blueberry pie-eating contest, while Trinity United Church gets the dunk tank up and running, with live music by The Accidentals and the Trinity Toe Tappers.

Head to the banks of the Vermillion River on Saturday at 2 p.m. for the Capreol Lions Club's Ducky Race.

Celebrate summer with the Capreol Business Association at the Summer Dinner and Dance that evening. Cocktails served at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 6:30 p.m. and live music and dancing to follow. Tickets are $50 and can be found at Lynn's Place and Capreol Foodland.

A rock crawl at Capreol Ski Hill is Sunday's main attraction, featuring some of the most outrageous off road vehicles ever to put tire to trail. Spectator prices are $10 for the day or $15 for the weekend.

Throughout the entire weekend, a softball tournament will be held at Centennial Field, while weekend memories can be preserved with Miss Lily's Old Time Photos at the Railroad Museum's Heritage Centre.
