Little Orphan Annie was right:  the sun DID come out!!  And so should you, to the Hot Summer Night Market tonight from 6-8pm at Willingdon Beach.  I heard a rumour that one of our food vendors is going to do corn on cob …

And next week, this town is positively (blackberry;) jam-packed with fun & frivolity during the annual BLACKBERRY FESTIVAL.  Due to all the other activities, the Night Market will take a hiatus next Thursday and return again on August 27, but be sure to make it out to at least one of these other events:
