64th Berwick Gala Days

Posted On: Sat. Sep. 5 2009

Especially for school aged children the Labour Day weekend is an end to summer, and each year since 1945 Berwick helps make that thought a little more bearable by celebrating Gala Days.

This year the 64th Berwick Gala Days celebration lasts from Thursday through to Monday with great events each day. Thursday and Friday left the events till the evening, but starting Saturday the events go on from morning till night.

Besides some of the ongoing events such as the Bounce Kingdom and Mainland Amusement area setup there are lots of other events as well.

Just a few of the great events going on are, Friday night had a Much Music Video Dance, Saturday has the Childrens parade in the morning, and a local teen band showcase in the afternoon. Sunday has a Show and Shine Car Show, Ox Pulls, a celebrity pie eating contest, and of course fireworks at night. This year the Grand Street Parade will be held on Monday morning. There will also be a variety show in the afternoon.

The weather for this weekend has been good so far and looks like it will stay good for the remainder, so get out and enjoy the warm air in Berwick before it's all gone.
