With all the excitement surrounding our Annual Fall Fair, the Town of Sackville wants to make sure you do not miss a thing. That is why we want to let residents know about changes to this year’s schedule as well as a couple items that are happening differently from previous years.
First, due to construction on Main Street, the Annual Parade and Main Street Mile will have a new route. Still starting at the Drew Nursing Home, the Parade will now follow Main Street to Bridge Street, will then turn left down Bridge Street to Lorne Street; and will then turn right onto Lorne Street before ending near the Rail Station. The Parade will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday, September 22nd.
The second big change will be the location of the Fireworks. Last year, the Fireworks took place over the wetlands behind Tantramar Regional High School. After discussing some logistical and safety issues, it was determined that the best place for the show would be to return to the Dufferin Street Sports Fields behind Town Hall. Dufferin Street will be closed to vehicular and foot traffic, so we encourage residents to walk to the Marshview Hill whenever possible to watch the show. The Fireworks will begin at 9:00pm on Friday, September 21st, with a rain date of 8:30pm on Saturday, September 22nd.
The final changes include an early arrival for the Midway, who will now be open for business at 4pm on Thursday and Friday, as well as from noon to 10pm on Saturday! They will not be open on Sunday. Additionally, Eddie Chase and the Graffiti Four has been replaced by Patty O’ Boy and the Beach Toys on Friday night in the tent with their set beginning at 9:30pm.
