Don’t rain on the Parade!

It’s Parade night in Bridgewater, if the rain holds off.

It’s South Shore Exhibition Week and the kick off is the Grand Street Parade tonight. Lots of fun.

In 1891 Bridgewater was the home to the first Exhibition. Records indicate that the Lunenburg County Exhibition was to be held in Bridgewater on the 5th & 6th days of October. Lots of changes since then!!

The name has changed from the Lunenburg County Exhibition (1891) to the Lunenburg County Exhibition Commission (1960) the Lunenburg County South Shore Exhibition (1967) and finally in 1973 the name was changed to and still remains The South Shore Exhibition “The Big Ex”

** UPDATE** Well…it doesn’t surprise me. Rain, rain, rain ALL day long… and so the parade is cancelled for today. I think it’s the first time it ever had to be postponed. And now because of a previous appointment out of town, we won’t get to see it.

 

I can’t help but share this cute little picture, seems fitting the last couple weeks.

I hope the sun is shining in your world!

Update*** Wednesday Night was perfect weather

Community

It’s not very often that there is a summer event, a fun thing you can do with your family, that is entirely free. Well today I was happy to be a part of a group that wants to encourage families but also show them that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life if they let HIM.

Bridgewater Open Bible Church in Bridgewater, NS has been putting on a Community Fun Fair at Shipyards Landing for the last few years. It’s so much fun for the WHOLE family. Face painting, games, bouncy houses, music, entertainment, cotton candy, BBQ, and lots more and……….it’s ALL FREE!!!!  Just come with your family and enjoy it. It’s a way to show LOVE in our community.

This year we are home and David & I helped a little. We manned the Bouncy House Obstacle Course haha. FUN!!
