Wawa's drag races are racing into town today.
The annual Northern Nationals Drag Race kicked off festivities last night, with races beginning today - including some special entertainment, like the jet car and funny cars.
Alex Patterson - the Municipality's Director of Community Services and Tourism - notes organizers have also made one change due to popular demand: hosting the Saturday night concert and dance at the raceway.
Patterson reminds there will also be vendors and a children's play village at race track, and encourages everyone to come out - especially with a very favourable weather forecast.
Driver registration is at the Community Centre from 8 to 1, then at the airport after gates open for the races at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Free shuttle bus service will be provided Saturday and Sunday - especially during the dance - with information about its schedule or the races' available at wawadragway.com or through the Northern Nationals Drag Race Facebook page.
