It should come as no surprise that things will look a little different next week on Friday the 13th in Port Dover. The local Kinsmen Club provided an update on their official Facebook page letting people know what to expect and thanking those who visit for supporting local business.
Main Street will be closed to cage traffic and reserved for bike parking only. There won’t be any planned events, concert stages, beer tents, vendors, camping, or shuttle busses, however local restaurants and shops will be open to serve patrons. Masks will be required indoors.
The Kinsmen Club will be selling their official Friday the 13th shirts at the Port Dover Kinsmen Hall on Highway 6 (where the campground normally is). They will also be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Glide Valued at $30,061.17. Sales will begin at 7am on Friday the 13th.
No resident pass is required for locals to enter town, however there will be limited street parking and some streets will be closed or converted to one way to encourage traffic flow. Members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will also be on hand to direct traffic.
There will be additional parking a the Port Dover Kinsmen Park for those unable to find parking downtown. The cost is by donation and all proceeds will go to the Kinsmen and local sporting organizations.
The next Friday the 13th occurs May 2022.
