There will be lots of fun family activities as the County of Antigonish celebrates Canada Day.  Outdoor activities will take place from 12 noon to five behind Saint Andrew Junior School.  Gabe O’Brien with the County Recreation Department says activities include games for the children, face painting, air brush tattooing, sugar on snow, bounce tents, and creation of balloon animals.  O’Brien says there will also be live entertainment.
Antigonish Culture Alive will also be involved.   Rachel Power with Antigonish Culture Alive says there will be five interactive installations from 1 to 4 p.m. including balloon art.

There is a new, comprehensive way to find out when community events are taking place through Antigonish Town and County. Local groups have decided to work together on a unified events calendar that highlights events happening throughout Antigonish.

Tricia Cameron is the Director of Recreation & Special Events for the Town of Antigonish. She says the Downtown Business Association, Culture Alive, The Antigonish Art Fair, St.FX and Town and County will all use the same community events page. Cameron says it seemed very sensible to work together as a group:


The site is continuing to be updated, and Cameron says more events will be added as the groups confirm dates for Spring and Summer events. A link to the new community events calendar can be found on
