So what is happening here in the Upper Kennebecasis valley in the next little while? Well let me see...
Atlantic International Balloon Fiesta - Sussex, NB - September 11-13th.
I always enjoy this colorful event. It always seems to bring friends and family together for a last hurrah of summer. There is always lots to see and do, even if the balloons aren't in the air.
TD Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up - Kennebecasis River - September 19th
The staff of the The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee is planning a party around this annual, nation wide, shoreline clean-up. There will be prizes, food, and fun, not to mention some great work cleaning trash out of our scenic rivers. Challenge your municipal council to get involved, challenge your neighbor. The KWRC wants to clean up 5km of stream this fall and with your help this will be an easy task.
After your done helping clean the rivers you can stop by and visit the booths at:
The Atlantic Hunting and Fishing Expo - Sussex, NB - September 18-20
This event will put all you need for outdoor adventure under one roof. Demonstrations, door prizes, and great conversation. If you like hunting and fishing or simply want to learn more about them, this is the place to be. The Sussex Fish and Game have worked hard and have made this event a huge success.
So there is no reason to fear the end of summer here in this beautiful province. September brings lots of activity and color to the landscape. I hope you can get out and wander and hopefully find yourself in a great place.
