On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the June edition of the King Bulletin.
The Nobleton Victoria Day Fair and Fireworks Show returned with a bang last Monday after a two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic. Thousands of residents and visitors from across the GTA came to Nobleton to take part in this signature event. Event vendors reported it was the busiest event they had been to in a long time.
The event was made possible with the support of many people, including staff, volunteers and Council.
Special thanks go to Councillor David Boyd for organizing the parade with King staff and volunteers and, of course, King Fire and Emergency Services for presenting the spectacular fireworks show.
I was happy to attend and it was amazing to see so many people enjoying themselves after two years of the pandemic.
The 172nd edition of the Schomberg Fair that ran from May 26 to May 29 was a spectacular success. The theme of the event was “Celebrating our Community Heroes” and it was indeed a great celebration. Thanks to all the volunteers and staff who made it a success.
The next big community event is the King City Craft Beer and Food Truck Festival which takes place on Saturday, June 11 from noon to 9 p.m.
Enjoy craft beer, food trucks and live entertainment. Tickets are now on sale at kingcraftbeerandfood.com. If you purchase them in advance, you receive a discount.
There are two types of tickets, the Craft Beer Event Pass for those who are 19 or older and the Music Event Pass for all ages. Children 12 and under get in free with adults who buy the Music Event Pass.
