As preparations for the Manitoba Sunflower Festival continue, the Altona Chamber of Commerce is looking to add a little spice to this weekend’s festivities.

The Amazing Sunflower Race is a brand new event this year, providing hours of fun for the whole family.  The race will provide local businesses some added exposure and offer interactive, family activities during the festival.

Registration for the race is free and the chamber has $500 in prizes to give away.
