The 2012 edition of the Lochaber Strawberry Festival will be held on Sunday, July 8th at Sylvan Hall on Highway #7 in Lochaber. Due to the ever growing popularity of this event, the hours have been extended, and the festival this year will run from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.
Entertainment this year will be provided by Joanne Bouchard, Andrew Stalker and friends and Natasha MacKinnon. Representatives of the Antigonish and St.F.X. rowing clubs will be in attendance to give people the opportunity to learn more about their plans for Lochaber, plus they will have a special surprise that will be announced during the course of the afternoon. Also the Antigonish SPCA will have a fundraising booth set up to sell tickets on an ATV. Some lucky folks with also go home with a one of our great door prizes.
So, plan to join us for a delicious strawberry shortcake (or two) made using local strawberries and home made biscuits and for a great afternoon of great live entertainment.
