Positively Petrolia June 6-10, 2019

Registration for the rally in Petrolia Canada is OPEN!. Petrolia, the home of the worlds first drilled oil wells, is conveniently located just east of Sarnia/Port Huron.

We attended the 2017 rally and had a great time. Getting there from the US is easiest going over the Blue Water bridge in Port Huron. Last trip, customs was NOT an issue. Just don't bring any fire arms!

Info on the rally:
June 6-10, 2019
Our base will be the Country View RV Park, where we'll enjoy four nights of full-hookup camping. Sites are limited to 22 units. All are full hookups, but only a few have 50 amps.
During our visit we’ll step back 50 years as we enjoy music and culture from 1969 Kick back and relive the music of The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Elvis, the Guess Who, and more, along with classic TV shows like Hee Haw and Sesame Street, at the beautifully restored Victoria Playhouse Petrolia. Following the show, we'll enjoy dinner at the nearby Actors Restaurant.
We'll cruise the St. Clair River, which carries Great Lakes shipping as part of the connector between Lake Huron and Lake Erie and form a portion of the international border between the United States and Canada, and we'll stop to enjoy lunch along the way.
In addition to the scheduled events, you'll have time to explore Petrolia's rich petroleum history; shop the farmers' market and charming local shops; visit Uncle Tom's Cabin, made famous in Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel of the same name; enjoy the city of Sarnia; stop by Lake Huron; and much more.

Hey Al, Are you going again this year? We got our registration in for this. sounds like a fun weekend to get together with some fellow FROGs. Some that we met last year in Goshen and look forward to seeing again.

Yup, made our reservation just before starting this thread. Wanted to make sure I had my spot! We didn't go last year, Mike didn't get the rally posted until quite late, so we went to the Amish rally in Ohio instead, then on to Mayberry.

I'm getting low on maple syrup again, I've used up most of the bottle I bought 2 years ago. So I'm definitely heading for the Farmers Market, hoping Mike got the discount coupon again. Major negative this year though - no X-rated outings!

I wonder if Mike got all of the bugs cleaned off the front of his rig? It was really plastered when he showed up in Goshen!

You'll have a great time. Since this is your first trip over:

1. Check up on what Canada allows to be taken over. Definitely, no firearms or pepper spray! Limits on fresh fruits / vegetables, uncooked food, alcohol, etc.
2. Best crossing for Petrolia is Port Huron. When you get to the Canadian side, you can take any lane. First time, we took the truck lane and were told we should have gone in the general public lanes...
3. Make sure you have proper identification. You can probably get into Canada, but without it, you may not be allowed back!
4. Check the rules on pets!


During your free time, go see the oil history sites. Most don't know that the first oil well was dug in this area.

Well it will be great to see you and your wife again. I heard a lot about the Petrolia rallies but I do believe I missed the story about the X-rated outing. Sounds like I need to ask about it this year sound like a good campfire story.

Well sounds like you got the job as bug inspector. I am sure Mike did some scrubbing though. I sympathize with him though as he just came back from Alberta. We did that trip twice now and it sure beats up the front of the trailer with bugs.

Nice. Sounds like SailorSam has the border covered but if you have questions ask. We have 4 more border crossings in our travel plans before year end. Actually this will be our first rally attended in Canada the others have been in the U.S.

Tried to sign up yesterday already full. I am on wait list. We really enjoyed the 2018 rally. Mike does a great job. Don't wish anyone bad luck but hope to get lucky and get a spot.

Hi guys,

Missed you at last year’s rally in Goshen. Glad to see that you will be coming to Petrolia, so Gale and Cathy can catch up on quilting. Gale will most likely have her machine and projects with us. Looking forward to seeing you guys again.

Henry and Gale
