A weekend to Explore!!
I am hitting the road once again to wave the flag on the wonderful things Bay Roberts has to offer the tourist this summer season! Our team, Lois Dawe and I, will be at the Glacier Mt. Pearl Friday to Sunday profiling our new guided tours and existing cultural attractions during the Downhome Expo.
The Downhome Expo is the ultimate consumer showcase in Newfoundland. What I like about it is that there is something for everyone, and I mean everyone. I urge you to visit their website and plan to make a visit, you won’t be disappointed. Visit http://www.DownhomeExpo.com to explore the Expo.
If you do visit, drop by our booth to say hello and talk to us about the many events that will be going on this summer. We have cultural, musical and culinary tours and well as hauntings in Coley’s Point next to three grave yards. Our Nation Historic Site, The Cable Building is a site to discover the building includes the Road to Yesterday Museum and Christopher Pratt Art Gallery. Our walking trail system is one of the best in the province and is the setting for our “Toutons and Tunes walking tour” and “Cellars and Songs musical walking tour”. While planning a day trip or a weekend excursion let our tourism department tailor your experience to ensure you get the most out of your visit.
Kelly Russell will also be back in Bay Roberts this summer with his evening of “Tunes and Tales” at the Royal Canadian Legion. Kelly is a cultural and musical Newfoundland and Labrador treasure. Take the time to come and visit and be charmed by the Tales of pigeon Inlet as well as some wonderful music.
Conception Bay North
Conception Bay North and surrounding area is steeped in History, from the private communication lines of President Roosevelt and Winston Churchill during WWII, to the birth place of English Settlement, to the departure of Amelia Earhart and the amazing exploits of Captain Bob Bartlett are all to explore within a 20 minute driving radius and only 50 minutes from St. John’s. A trip to this region of the province is worth researching, and if you are going to the Expo, drop by and we can tell you more about our region.
