Spring into sum­mer in Bay Roberts

The Compass - - OPINION - BY DENISE PIKE

The 8 Track Favourites fol­lowed by Midlife Cri­sis are go­ing to kick off the sum­mer sea­son in the town of Bay Roberts. Both bands will be per­form­ing at the Bay Arena Satur­day, June 13.

The Spring into Sum­mer Dance, hosted by the Bay Roberts Spe­cial Events com­mit­tee, will al­low peo­ple of all ages (19 and older) to kick up their heels and shake off the win­ter blahs.

“We held a sim­i­lar con­cert last year and it was so well re­ceived by the pub­lic, we de­cided to go with the same again this year,” said Ron De­laney, di­rec­tor of eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, tourism and recre­ation events for the town of Bay Roberts. “It’s a pub like set­ting where peo­ple can sit and lis­ten to the mu­sic or get up and dance. The mu­sic is sure to be great too. It’ll be a mix­ture of coun­try and 80’s style mu­sic. There’ll be some­thing for every­one to en­joy.”

Al­though the Spring into Sum­mer Dan­ceis not part of the town’s an­nual Klondyke days, it is a pre­lude to other good things to come.

“There’s go­ing to be lots of ac­tiv­i­ties on the go in Bay Roberts through­out the sum­mer,” said De­laney. “We’re gear­ing up to as­sist Cupids with their 400 cel­e­bra­tion next year - to pro­mote our town as well as other towns and com­mu­ni­ties in Trin­ity Con­cep­tion to the rest of the world.”

De­laney hopes peo­ple will va­ca­tion at home this sum­mer as well as next.

“We plan to host events to keep peo­ple in the Bay Roberts and lo­cal area. There’s all kinds of great sites and events around the Bay de Verde Penin­sula, many at­trac­tions, and we need to work to­gether to re­gion­ally mar­ket our­selves as a ma­jor tourism des­ti­na­tion in At­lantic Canada,” he said.“We have to not only look af­ter our own towns and com­mu­ni­ties, but each other as well.”
