For three days in June, the community of Blumenort is hosting a festival.
Blumenort Fun and Fair Days coordinator Karen Doyle Hopkins is looking forward to this year’s event. This will be the third consecutive year the fair is taking place after a lengthy hiatus.
“We have a lot of fun things planned and everyone is welcome to come out and enjoy the weekend,” invited Hopkins. “We are also looking for volunteers.”
Kicking off June 22 with karaoke, open mic talent, great music and a family movie at dusk the event is promising to draw in crowds.
On Saturday there is a pancake breakfast from 7-9 hosted by the Blumenort LUD and the RM of Hanover, a parade at 10am, Lulu and the Tomcat providing entertainment, bouncers, mini train rides, kiddie carnival, petting zoo, a magician, Stony Brook dancers, X company dancers and the Southeast Spark showing off their cheerleading moves. At 2pm there will be a tug of war and at 4pm more great music on the main stage. At dusk there will be fireworks.
On Sunday there will be a community church service followed by a free Meican Disco lunch. Whew! Going to be a busy weekend and tons of fun!
There will also be a vast array of entertainment including McKenzie Road on Friday. On Saturday, Liza Mae Johnson an early contestant on this season’s Canada’s Got Talent; Jason Kirkness, Hurricane Jenny and the Jake Brakes will be taking the stage.
