Are you ready for a fantastic Saturday in the Harbour? This Saturday, April 27, in downtown Madeira Park from the Legion to the Hall and all the way down to the government dock, there will be non-stop fun, food, festivities, activities, contests and raffles.
April Tools is a day-long festival at Millennium Park with activities for kids and the hugely popular Boat Building Contest. At the Hall, the annual plant sale and craft bazaar is all about fabulous plants as well as fine vendors offering beautiful treasures, including Aurelia’s Steeped Teas, Falter Farms Coffees, a bake sale and raffle, the Health Auxiliary, art and photographs by Mary Cains, and Thirty One Gifts, for you and your home from Traci.
