Summer is just around the corner and that means that the 35th St. Peter’s Bay Wild Blueberry Festival and Homecoming is getting closer. This year we are bringing back an old favourite as well as adding a few new events.
Saturday, July 29 will see the return of the co-ed softball tournament. The festival wants to thank the Community of St. Peter’s for the upgrades to the ball field which will allow this event to take place within our own community. The Community is taking care of the extensive field repairs while the Festival is replacing the dugouts and fixing the backstop. The ball tournament will be followed Saturday night by a Pub Night which will be held at the St. Peter’s Complex. Also on Saturday, July 29 there will be a crokinole tournament, both singles and doubles, which will be held at the St Peter’s Complex. Don’t forget the annual Blueberry Festival Yard Sale!
Friday, August 4 will be Children’s day. This event is being revamped this year to create a carnival atmosphere with some events from previous years returning and new ones being added. Also, this year the Festival will be having events on Sunday, August 6. Further details on all these events will follow.
We have tried to change things up in response to the survey that was completed following last year’s festival. As everyone can imagine a festival of this size requires many volunteers to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Since we have expanded the festival this year we are seeking more volunteers to help us make the 35th a huge success. A big thank you to all that have volunteered in the past and we hope that you are still on board for helping out this year. To those that would like to help out please contact anyone of the festival committee members or send us a message on our Facebook page. Thank you from St. Peter’s Blueberry Festival Committee.
