August 9-10th, 2013
The Honey Festival has been a yearly tradition in our town since 1970! This year we are changing things up! We are now starting our event on Friday Night with a youth Praise and Worship Night with Fresh I E headlining! Joining him is The Color with Fox and Runner! Tickets will be $10 and the Canteen will be open for supper serving hot dogs and burgers and all kinds of snacks.
Saturday will begin as normal with our Free Pancake Breakfast followed by the Parade. However as the parade progresses there will be a very pleasing aroma coming from the park as our 1st annual Chili Cook-off will be underway in time for everyone to be the judge for lunch. You can let the kids play all day at our Playland Of Milk & Honey, sponsored by all of the Milk & Honey producers in the area! At this playland you will find a carnival, photo boards, an archery range, a bouncy park for all ages, mural painting, toys, crafts, and so much more. Our bouncy park will include and play zone for toddlers, sumo wrestling, boxing, slide and bouncy castle!
Our evening concert will be headlining Kimberly Dawn, and Matt Falk and will take place at 7:30pm. Tickets for that concert will be $15 and the proceeds from the ticket sales will not only help to develop our park and Honey Festival but also help those in our community who have dealt with and are dealing with cancer. We have teamed up with Helping Hooves Manitoba and Southeast Helping Hands to raise money to help with medication costs and treatments not covered by medicare as well as groceries, transportation, and childcare during this time. Visit them at their booth on August 10th to find out more! Two years ago we did this with Wild Pink Yonder and we donated $2500 to their efforts, this year our Honey Festival is the Kick off Party for Helping Hooves 3 week ride to raise money and we hope to raise even more with your help!
We end the night with the best Fireworks in the area Sponsored by our Ward 5 Councillor, the One and Only Clif Bakx!!
