I am happy to announce that the Kitchissippi Museum will be participating in Westfest this year! I will be setting up a sizable booth at Laroche Park on Saturday June 3rd to share a ton of old photos, maps, and artifacts from the history of our area. I invite you to come out and say hi, share stories, or just browse through the things I'll be bringing. I'll likely be set up by 10:30, and will stay until late afternoon. Of course, this is weather permitting. If it's raining Saturday, I'll aim to set up Sunday instead.
I'll post back a little closer to the event date with some highlight items I'll be bringing. I have a few new things I'd love to share.
Really looking forward to it! Westfest is an awesome event, I'm proud to have been a participant for several years on Richmond Road, and am excited to set up in Laroche Park this year.

Hope to see you on Saturday June 3rd!
