You are cordially invited to tea.
Glen MacKinnon will be hosting the annual Mayor’s Tea in Trenton today (Thursday) as he welcomes his own residents and those from other communities to the town’s FunFest activities.
“As mayor of the town and behalf of the council, I invite everyone in Pictou County to come,” MacKinnon said.
Despite a host of activities happening in Pictou County this weekend, including the Lobster Carnival in Pictou and Read by the Sea Festival in River John, he’s confident that they’ll have strong turnout as always.
“The people of Pictou County have always been very good about enjoying all the events. We all have our own draws. We’re happy that the municipalities in Pictou County can put on so many activities.”
He praised the efforts of the FunFest committee.
“From the scavenger hunt to the dance to the fireworks on Sunday night and the concert, it’s always a great weekend.”
The tea and opening ceremonies will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre Annex. Tonight there will be a showing of Monsters University at dusk followed by Carrie and a haunted walk for teens.
Check the town’s website for a complete list of activities or see the list of events published in Wednesday’s edition of The News.
Sherry MacDonald, who has been organizing the event, said they’ve tried to add some new events to make this year a bit different.
She said there’s always a concern about attendance because there’s money involved and the funds raised this year are what pay for the festival to continue, but from what she’s heard, a lot of people are planning to come.
“Everybody seems excited about it,” she said.
