“This project exemplifies what the Creative County Grant Program aims to achieve,” commented Lambton County Warden, Kevin Marriott. “By supporting new, unique, and innovative events that strengthen the creative community and define the County’s unique identity, and ultimately enrich the quality of life for all residents. I am proud that the Creative County Grant Program has been able to play a small role in making this event possible and look forward to attending on August 20th “
There will be over 50 vendors, live entertainment, food trucks and a licensed “Watering Hole” (19+). All attendees, children and adults, are encouraged to get into the nautical spirit by dressing up as their own mermaids, sailors or pirates!
“We are blown out of the water by the interest and support shown by our local community volunteers and businesses in helping to launch this ship! We are over the waves to come together as a community to #SHELLebratetheshoreline that we call HOME here in beautiful St. Clair Township! Come out and enjoy the park, splash pad, vendors, food, entertainment and, of course, the view! There truly is something for everyone!”, invites event founder and organizer, Sherri DeWolf.
