Celebrating Colours 2016: Music Fest in Mackey in support of the Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) takes place this Saturday
It’s that beautiful autumn time of year again, and you are invited to celebrate at the annual Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) fundraiser Celebrating Colours: 2016 Music Fest in Mackey on Sept. 24 from 3 to 8 p.m.
The event features a wonderful lineup of local musicians and an abundant barbecue to enjoy around the campfire. Bring a chair, sweater, your favourite drink, and plates/cutlery, if you remember. We’re going as green as possible this year.
