Bonnievale Bonanza 2014

The Bonnievale Bonanza is a sport-based, adventure and family event. It takes place at various venues throughout the town of Bonnievale, with a central festival area at the Bonnievale High School grounds. Best of all, the Bonanza is all for a good cause and proceeds go to Bonnievale Highschool.
