An event-packed weekend begins in Carleton Place this Friday with a Junkyard Symphony jam.

This show takes place in the Upper/Large Hall at the Carleton Place Arena at 75 Neelin Street on May 31 at 10 a.m. This is a one-hour show, suitable for all ages.

The Junkyard Jam features radical rhythms on rubbish. Junkyard Symphony jams with the audience along to the beat of the junk. The only language spoken is the language of rhythm. Volunteers get to dance the Macarena, shake shakers, do the limbo and have a ball! The best part, however, is that after the show, volunteers get to come up and jam on the junk drums.

Tickets can be purchased at the door while supplies last for $2 per person.

Then, on Saturday, June 1, a full day of family activities geared for all ages in store.

Attendees can start their adventure by parking in Downtown Carleton Place at one of the shuttle stops and hop on the free shuttle school bus to Mighty Machines Day at 3 Francis Street from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tour a variety of mighty machines and family activities, then explore the downtown area after your shuttle back.

Shuttle stop locations include the Market Square Pavilion (7 Beckwith Street), Carleton Place Library (101 Beckwith Street), Carleton Place Town Hall (175 Bridge Street), and the 92 Bridge Street parking lot. 

Then,, from 3 to 5 p.m., head to the McNeely Park Party at 24 Alexander Street. A live show from Meet The Keepers Wildlife Rescue Centre will take place at 3 p.m., along with an assortment of games and fun.
