Rain­bow con­nec­tion

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

The sight of a rain­bow is of­ten re­garded as a sym­bol of hope, and the cit­i­zens of Cupids — the site this week of the largest cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion to take place in the prov­ince this sum­mer — were likely hop­ing for clear skies and warm tem­per­a­tures when this me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal phe­nom­e­non ap­peared over the his­toric com­mu­nity re­cently. The annul Cupids Cove Soiree kicks off to­day (Aug. 17) with a VIP-loaded open­ing cer­e­monies and con­tin­ues un­til Aug. 22. The fes­ti­val is the cen­tre­piece of Cupids 400 cel­e­bra­tions, which is be­ing staged to mark the 400th an­niver­sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of the old­est English set­tle­ment in Canada.
