03 Oct Congratulations to the 2019 Peggys Cove Festival of the Arts!
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the Peggys Cove Festival of the Arts Society for their successful 9th annual celebration of the arts.
The event featured over a hundred local, national and international artists and craftspeople.
Many people, both from Nova Scotia and visitors from abroad, came to Peggys Cove and the surrounding area just for this festival. Since its launch in 2011, the Peggys Cove Area Festival of the Arts has grown quickly into a full-fledged not-for-profit event attracting admiring art enthusiasts.
This coastal festival is a celebration of the wealth of artistic talent in Nova Scotia. Of course, the focal point is the iconic Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse on the incredible St Margarets Bay, but also includes other bays, harbours, coves and communities such as Prospect Bay, Shad Bay, Head Harbour, Hubbards Cove and Mahone Bay.
Mr. Speaker I invite the members of the House of Assembly to join me in congratulating the many volunteers who organized and successfully presented the 9th Annual Peggys Cove Festival of the Arts, as well as all the artists and craftspeople whose work was featured during the event.
