CAMPBELLVILLE, May 22 – Award-winning photographers Michael Burns and Clive Cohen roamed through a crowd of thousands Saturday night at Mohawk Racetrack as families of all-ages flooded the Campbellville oval for Fireworks and Family Fun Night.
An exciting evening of world class harness racing was supported by a number of fun, family activities including our Kidsfest Zone featuring face painting, craft stations, carnival games, inflatable slides and an animal show.
Fans also had a chance to learn a little more about horses by visiting with a mare and foal at the front entrance, interacting with the parade pony and participating in sulky rides between races.
On the track, racing fans were treated to strong performances by three-year-old trotting filly Magic Presto in the $130,130 SBOA Trot Stakes and Fade in the $132,130 SBOA Pace Stakes.
A outstanding fireworks show capped off a tremendous evening at Mohawk Racetrack.
To relieve all the fireworks and family fun, check out several of the images captured by Burns and Cohen and be sure to join us again next year for our annual Fireworks and Family Fun Night.
