MONTCALM HERITAGE FESTIVAL - JUNE 11TH 2016
Annual celebration in St-Joseph
This past weekend, the Rural Municipality of Montcalm celebrated their annual Montcalm Heritage Festival. They started off with a free Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning, and this was only the start. All day they had all kinds of activities, family baseball, museum tours, Ricklyn Farm Petting Zoo, entertainment and a fishpond for kids. The big parade started at 1pm and was followed by the opening ceremonies, a magic show, an Elvis impersonator and an evening full of entertainment. No one left hungry, all day their canteen was busy serving their classic pulled pork sandwich and their Pork & Beans special. They had their big BBQ supper in the evening. Sunday the activities continued and the whole festival ended with another big feast Sunday night. The festival did not expect the number of participants they had over the weekend. They had visitors from all the way from out of the province. Two big families picked this festival to host their annual family reunion. If you missed your chance to go this year, do not make the same mistake next year! See you at the Montcalm Festival 2017.
