BIG CROWDS AT BEACH
ON CIVIC HOLIDAY
Over Six Thousand Amusement Seekers Visited This
Macassa Carried Over Three Thousand.
Hardy, Gave Performance On Tight Wire. Vaudeville Show in Auditorium a Real Classy One.
While Civic Holiday passed off quietly in Grimsby, it was by no means a quiet day at Grimsby Beach, this beautiful resort having the biggest Civic, holiday crowd that it has ever had.
Close to six thousand people spent the day picnicing and enjoying rest and amusement and the H. G. & B. and the Macassa had all they could do to handle the traffic.
The Macassa made four trips between Toronto and the Beach and each time was loaded to her capacity both ways. On her first trip out of Toronto in the morning, over five hundred people were left on the Toronto dock,being unable to get aboard, and about three hundred
were left behind on the first afternoon trip. On her midnight trip out of the Beach, she was loaded from stern to bow, but managed to get all on board and land them safely in Toronto right on time.
Over a thousand meals were
served at dinner and supper at the
Park House and close to five hun-
dred at the Lake View.
Hardy, the man who walks the
tigh twire, forty feet up in the air,
gave two performances during the
day, to enormous crowds.
In the auditorium, eight vaudeville
acts were on the bill and they play-
ed to good houses at both the mati-
nee and night performances.
Miss Billie Breen, a singer with a
beautiful voice and a charming man-
ner, was the star of the bill, close-
ly followed by Vedmore and Wallace,
The other acts that made up the
bill were Morrison & Clifton, sketch
artists; Musical Thomas, Elliott and
Fawcett, Operatic Duo; Lillian Lorrel, English commedienne and Voight
& Voight, comedy jugglers.
This fine bill will be presented
for the balance of the week, with
all seats twenty-five cents on Satur-
Hardy, the man who put the
"Falls" in Niagara Falls, will give a
performance daily at 5 o'clock and
two performances on Saturday, at
