Hundreds of athletes will be dropping from the sky.
Hundreds of athletes will be soaring over our area this summer in hopes of becoming the best of the best.
Skydive Wasaga Beach has won its bid to host the 2019 Canadian National Parachuting Championships at the Wasaga Sports Park.
The event will run from August 31st to September 6 and this is the first time in ten years this event has been held in Ontario.
Owner of Skydive Wasaga Beach, Les Farkas, says skydivers will be competing in various wing suit categories, acrobatics, formations as fast as possible at high speeds, and other categories.
Farkas says he is still working with the town to see how it wants to take part so town approvals are still needed. He adds he would like to have a festival including concerts.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to collect donations to help cover the costs of the participants in the 2019 event in Wasaga Beach.
