While plans are still being finalized, 2019 is shaping up to be quite the 100th-anniversary bash for the Town of Clark’s Harbour.
Special events have been scheduled for basically every month of the year. On March 4, the date of the town’s incorporation, a dinner with special guests and entertainment will be held to commemorate the occasion.
The Nova Scotia Mass Choir will perform at the United Baptist Stone Church tentatively on May 4. On May 24 and 24 the Lighthouse Players will present the Sherry Show, Antics and the Fashions of Bygone days in Clark’s Harbour, at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall.
Also, in the spring, the town will be starting a community garden and has plans to plant a centennial tree.
Without a doubt the town’s annual July 1 celebrations will be pumped up this year. Details of that will come later.
A gospel concert at the F.A Brannen Memorial Ball Park is on tap for July 26 and 27 and, on July 31, a seniors’ tea will mark the start of the Clark’s Harbour School Reunion, which runs until Aug. 4.
Bike racing is also returning to Cape Sable Island and Clark’s Harbour this year with Roadents Competitive Cycling Cape Island Road Race slated for Aug. 19.
On Sept. 14, a family day and pig roast will be held at the ball park, with plans for a fashion show also that month.
October will bring the pumpkin and squash weigh-off, pumpkin people at the haunted house.
The year’s festivities will wrap up with the town’s annual Christmas party, breakfast with Santa and house-decorating contest.
