KIDS FEST August 10 Goes Forward Without Ray’s Reptiles

Festival by the Marsh is presenting its sixth annual KIDS FEST with events including a magician, childrens’ plays and musicals, family music, a bbq, and traditional storytelling. All events (except for the musical “Annie” noted below) are free for the whole family. KIDS FEST will be held on Saturday, August 10.

A previously advertised presentation by Ray's Reptiles has been cancelled out of respect for events that occurred in Campbellton on Sunday and for the family of the boys.
