The 36th annual YMCA Peterborough Half Marathon took runners on a scenic route through the heart of Peterborough recently. Check out this great video made by Get Out There magazine.
As one of the community’s most important fundraising events, Peterborough’s Dragon Boat Festival—which PTBOCanada.com is a proud sponsor of this year—has announced their 2014 goal to raise $200,000 to support the Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC)’s mammography program, with new reporting workstations for radiologists and new breast viewing software. This year's Festival will be held on Saturday, June 14th.
To help reach this year’s fundraising target, the Festival wants to attract 80 community teams to compete in a number of divisions and categories. There are several new features for the 2014 Festival, including an expanded Junior Division for high school paddlers between the ages of 14-18; and a new bonus 250m Sprint Race for the first eight teams to raise $2,000 in pledges.
Registration for the 2014 Festival is now open. Community team captains can register their team online. An early bird registration rate is available until March 11, 2014, and the registration deadline is April 14th. All materials and packages, including registration details, are available at the Festival’s new website.
Yep, we have a pizza named after us. "The PTBOCanada.com" (see pic below) is now available at Southside Pizzeria, located at 25 Lansdowne St W. Available in sizes small through extra large, this original recipe includes: sausage, red onion, feta cheese, blended cheese, BBQ sauce, tomato sauce, and Peameal bacon. We've sampled it, and it's delicious. (Note: each topping is optional!) To order it or any other pizza there, call 705.748.6120. (Optional but fun: Email us or tweet us @Ptbo_Canada and @SouthSidePizzer when you order "The PTBOCanada.com"—and tweeting or emailing us pictures of you eating it are even more fun!) —By Aaron Elliott
Yes, Gobi (a 6-year-old male) and Zaya (3-year-old female) definitely seem to dig Winter. Look at these adorable pics of them being all affectionate and playful taken recently at Riverview Park & Zoo. It starts with a snow beard and ends with a snow bath. Someone get these two a Twitter account like the sloths Porsche and Ferrari have @PtboSloths!
[UPDATE: We got him! Robert Pattinson in Millbrook! See pics below!!]
[UPDATE 2: Moviefone.com picks up our post.]
The Hollywood movie Life starring Robert Pattinson (Twilight film series) is filming scenes in Millbrook, Ont., near Peterborough on Tuesday (March 4th). Pattinson plays the role of Dennis Stock, the photographer for Life magazine who took many of the iconic images of James Dean. Millbrook's downtown on King Street is being transformed by the film crew into the 1950s era (see pic below), with primary scenes to be filmed at The Pastry Peddler—which will stand in as a Fifties shoe store. Pattinson will be in town for the shoot. The movie is slated for release in 2015.
