LANTZ: It’s Tide Fest weekend July 12-14.

The small crew of volunteers behind East Hants Tide Fest are ready to put on a great weekend of activities for everyone this weekend.

From the family fun fair; face painting; washer toss; the Graham Isenor Memorial ball tournament; jamboree; and two nights of great musical entertainment, there’s been a lot of work done over countless hours to give the community a summer celebration.

There will even be a food truck rally, with two of East Hants’ favourites among those scheduled to be there – the Beefy Weiner and Soaring Crane Sushi.

More info with a full schedule can be found on the Tide Fest website at:
