THE BEDFORD BASIN REPORT
Thank you for reading this e-newsletter. It seems hardly possible, but here we are at summer solstice. It seems like just yesterday that we were marking New Year’s Eve.
Bedford’s annual celebration, Bedford Days, is nearly upon us. There really is something for everyone — everything from indigenous art (on display beginning last night until Tuesday June 27) at Sunnyside Mall to athletic events, multicultural celebrations, and many other fun events. To find out where and when events are happening, please visit the Halifax website.
Our firefighters will hold their annual Beer Fest on Canada Day evening at DeWolf Park from 6 p.m. to midnight for those 19+. This is a major fundraiser for our firefighters, and recent events have shown how very much they’re needed. If you’re able, please support them — and please drive responsibly.
I want to thank the volunteers, HRM staff, Councillor Tim Outhit, and the businesses and other organizations for their creativity and their hard work.
I did want to note that this year, tickets are required for “Rouge et Blanc” on Saturday night. Admission is still free, but this will help organizers plan for attendance. You can get your ticket here.
I look forward to seeing you at Bedford Days — soon!
Kelly Regan, MLA for Bedford Basin
