Warm up your pitching arm and come dunk a celebrity at the Ponoka’s Day in the Park fair.
Ponoka Mayor Rick Bonnett will be among the local celebs getting set to take one for the team.
Also on the roster are Ponoka CAO Albert Flootman, Brett Mauthe, manager of the local Servus Credit Union, Gary Colyn, manager of the Sommer Home Hardware Building Centre, Rob McArthur, a Homechurch Pastor, and others.
The summer festival is on Friday, Aug. 23 from 4 – 6 p.m. at Lion’s Centennial Park.
