Giving Thanks to Fall Festival Donors

8 10 2016

Held on September 25, 2016, this year’s edition of the McKellar Park Fall Festival was a resounding success with approximately 400 people in attendance. The beautiful weather, great food and music made for a wonderful day.

The event was made possible only by the generous contribution of our title sponsors Morris Home Team and Loving Life Chiropractic, our event sponsors Westboro BIA and Burke Cleland Personal Training, contributing sponsors AMICA and Twin Team, and the other local businesses who provided goods and services to the event. Thank you for everything you do to support our community.

We would also like to extend our gratitude to our event partners Dovercourt Recreation Association and Bluesfest School of Music and Art and to our wonderful volunteers. We could not have done it without your help. Take a look at the wonderful photos taken by our event photographer Rebecca Thompson. Thanks, Rebecca !

We look forward to seeing you in the park in 2017.
