Pa­rade brings out tunes

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND - ED­U­CA­TION

The Miss Brook­lyn Babe Lit­tle Mermaid float was de­clared most orig­i­nal en­try in this year’s Tig­nish Ir­ish Moss Fes­ti­val pa­rade. With the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Stompin’ Tom Cen­tre be­ing cel­e­brated just up the road, the pa­rade was filled with mu­sic and had a dis­tinc­tive Stompin’ Tom theme. All pro­ceeds from this year’s fes­ti­val are go­ing to­wards the Town of Tig­nish’s share of a splash pad and walk­ing trail project at Tig­nish Bi­cen­ten­nial Park. Be­low at left, Clean Cuts’ float, Half-cut BAR­ber­shop was judged best over­all en­try in Sun­day’s Tig­nish Ir­ish Moss Fes­ti­val pa­rade. In photo at right, it was Fr. Bud the Spud from St. Si­mon and St. Jude Par­ish. The par­ish priest added to his nick­name for the Stompin’ Tom-themed fes­ti­val pa­rade.
