Spring into summer in Bay Roberts
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.”
