No need to be bored if you’re near New Bothwell this weekend. The New Bothwell Summer Fair offers fun for all this Saturday.

The first pitch of the first annual Marble Classic slow-pitch tournament flies at 8 a.m at the New Bothwell Rec Centre. Teams will compete for a cash prize of $800.

Those not playing baseball can start the day at 8:30 a.m. with a free pancake breakfast, also at the Rec Centre. At 9 a.m., rummage for hidden treasure at the flea market, which is open until 3 p.m.

The fair has added a bunch of new kids’ activities this year, like a Velcro wall, a petting zoo and laser tag.

Chow down all afternoon on food from the New B’s canteen. Then at 6 p.m. enjoy a barbeque chicken dinner.

To cap the day, dance to oldies and classic rock band The Cracked Eggshell and then laugh away the rest of the evening with comedian Matt Falk. The Cracked Eggshell plays from 7-8:30 p.m., Matt Falk takes the stage at 8:30 p.m. The Cracked Eggshell return for a late-night encore from 9:30-11 p.m.
