Popular parade moving to New Minas
KENTVILLE - The mayor of Kentville says she’s “heartbroken” over the news that one of the largest and most popular Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival events won’t be held in Kentville this year.
The festival board of directors announced Thursday that the Grand Street Parade would be moved to New Minas. A news release states that the locations of several other events would be announced during the coming weeks on the festival website. Mayor Sandra Snow said the Town of Kentville was advised of the change only two hours before the news release from the festival went out. They have only three months notice of the parade – one of the largest festival events - leaving town.
