Nothing says summer like SuperEX. And this year, there’s something to appeal to everyone, a SuperEX spokeswoman said.
“It’s the best thing that happens towards the end of summer,” said Rebecca Crow.
In its 122nd year, SuperEX runs at Lansdowne Park from Aug. 19 to 29.
New this year is a Canadian pioneer gathering on site for the 11-day run.
“They will live, work, eat and sleep here in period costumes from the 1740s to the 1800s,” Crow said.
A professional FMX and BMX team will perform high flying stunts, said Crow, “and there’s a demolition derby on the last day, which is totally awesome.”
The free concert series returns with Helix, Honeymoon Suite, Jason Blaine, Irish Descendents, Classified, 5 Man Electrical Band and more. For fans of standup, there’s also an Absolute Comedy night, Crow said.
