To honour Jennifer Casey, a member of the Snowbirds who lost her life while on Operation Inspiration in 2020, Peachfest has renamed one of its long-running events, The Jennifer Casey Memorial Peach Bin Race. The race is held annually on the opening day of the festival. Jennifer competed, as a member of the Snowbirds Team, in the 2019 Peach Bin Race. Peachfest pays homage to her and to what the Snowbirds represent to Canadians.
We are looking for individuals and companies to partake in the 8th annual Peach Bin Races! Teams sponsor a peach bin, retrofit it with whatever mechanical or aesthetic stylings they see fit then race it down Main Street for glory!
