Mov­ing the Grand Street Pa­rade

lain said she wasn’t able to re­lease any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about which events would be moved.

A large part of the rea­son­ing is to spread the ben­e­fits of the fes­ti­val around, which goes back to the fes­ti­val’s orig­i­nal man­date and mis­sion, she added.

Snow pointed out that there is an en­tire emer­gency mea­sures plan that goes along with Kentville host­ing the pa­rade. She won­ders how a sim­i­lar plan for New Mi­nas will be cre­ated in just three months. Snow said it seems there are many is­sues that haven’t been con­sid­ered.

Snow hadn’t re­ceived any feed­back on the pa­rade be­ing moved from any of the other may­ors and said it didn’t seem like there had been any con­sul­ta­tion.

The fes­ti­val was in­tro­duced in 1933 to pub­li­cize the ap­ple in­dus­try and scenic beauty of the Val­ley and to help fos­ter the de­vel­op­ment of lo­cal tal­ent through var­i­ous fes­ti­val events.

This year’s fes­ti­val runs from May 24 to 29 with the theme “Rooted in Tra­di­tion.”
