On Friday, Aug 23 dozens of people visited the newly renovated Stanley Bridge Centre to participate in opening ceremonies for the 17th Annual River Days Festival (Aug 23-25).
There were plenty of delicious finger foods on hand, ice cream and a large cake featuring this year’s pirate theme. Among the attending dignitaries were Malpeque Liberal MP Wayne Easter, Rustico-Emerald PC MLA and Education Minister Brad Trivers, Alfred Fyfe and Trout River Road author, educator and former MLA Marion Murphy.
Talented musical performer Stewart MacFarlane provided the evening’s entertainment.
Stanley Bridge Centre volunteers were busy early the next morning preparing the building for the season’s first, and only, farmer’s market, featuring more than a dozen vendors.
