Fun times at the Feller from For­tune fest

The Southern Gazette - - EDITORIAL - FOR­TUNE, NL

The sun beamed brightly and the smell of freshly cooked French fries and other treats per­me­ated in the air at the an­nual Feller from For­tune In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val on Aug. 19.

There were booths where var­i­ous goods and wares were on dis­play for sale.

Chil­dren ran, hopped and danced about in front of the stage to the sounds of Char­lie’s Bar Band, JohnBoy and Raquel, Bara­chois, All Four and more.

The af­ter­noon also served as a fundraiser for floor re­pairs and up­grades to For­tune Arena.

Other events dur­ing five-day fes­ti­val in­cluded the wharf rat com­pe­ti­tion, a gar­den party, a pre-teen soc hop, a teen dance, a fish sup­per, a pa­rade of lights, a fam­ily day, a fun run and walk, a fes­ti­val brunch, an ec­u­meni­cal ser­vice and Burin Penin­sula Got Tal­ent.
