A BIG thank you to all the volunteers that spent many long days and evenings planning and putting it together and spending their day to make your day so special.
The village was bustling by 9AM to start the breakfast, and ready to visit the market by 10AM. It was nice to see so many people out for the day some visited for an hour or two, others spent the entire day with us.
The live entertainment was all volunteered by local artists and they were able to entertain all afternoon and evening until the fi reworks. That was a great job and music appealing to all ages.
The kids had a great time bouncing in the Inflatables, by the way some child went home without their shoes if you are wondering where they are they can be claimed at the museum.
The parade was held at 4PM with all modes of transportation displayed some on foot, horseback, horse and wagon, bicycles, cars, tractors, motorcycles and the old fire engine. Oh, and of course, our special guest giving tribute to “Minnie Pearl”.
Four bikes were donated by Ray Kneeland, Byron Norman and Bev Getzlaf as prizes for best kids decorated float, (bike, wagon or other) were won by Tessa Roberts, Dominic Roberts, Charlotte Bowden and James Vincett. although every bike helped make the parade. A great job and we thank you for your participation.
Thanks to Teresa’s Catering for preparing the BBQ the food was scrumptious, you could tell by the lineup.
The winner of the Playhouse/Garden shed was won by Don Getzlaf. Congratulations Don!
The Grand Finale were the Fireworks and they were spectacular.
The only downside to the event is after all the hard work by volunteers to make our village appealing to our guests which by the way is each and every one of you who visit us this summer is that someone tipped over two of the large flower pots.
SHAME ON YOU!!!
