Thank you to all who joined us at our 5th annual Lavender Festival. It was a huge success with 5,000 visitors attending the celebrations. We enjoyed a beautiful weekend filled with music, fun, entertainment, food and lavender fields at their most beautiful! The music bands/performers on both days were fantastic, and included David the Magician who had us amazed again this year with his card tricks and other magical skills. Children were thrilled with balloon artist Chuckles the Clown. Tired people enjoyed chair massages by Relax Right, and those wanting to take home something to remember their day created wands and swags in the Craft Corner. The petting zoo and pony rides were a great hit with the children. Visitors enjoyed learning about the process of essential oil distillation. The Tasting Room Tent was a busy spot with visitors sampling lavender shortbread, lavender chocolate and our refreshing lavender lemonade. As well there were local food vendors on site to provide a variety of unique and tasty foods.
We are very pleased to share with you this beautiful video walk through from the festival, created for us by Trevor Crowe, Community Development Coordinator with The Corporation of the County of Prince Edward. Thank you Trevor!
