After months of not celebrating much of anything as a community, the village of Grenville is planning to bring citizens together again for some fun on Saturday, August 21.
Grenville en Fête will take place at Parc Normand-Woodbury in the centre of the village along rue Tri-Jean.
The festivities begin at 2:30 p.m. with a rock show, inflatable games, treasure hunt, and a vendor market. Beginning at 3:30 p.m. there will be games, food, and a bar available. The band Johnny and Me goes on stage at 5:30 p.m.
In the evening, DJ Ériq Deslauriers will show music videos on a giant screen.
Grenville en Fête will wrap up at 10 p.m. with a fireworks display.
“We are going to have a good community festival,” said Councillor Peter Dopelhamer, speaking at the August 2 village council meeting.
Each summer, the village of Grenville usually hosts the popular Mayor’s Fishing Day in June and a St-Jean-Baptiste Day celebration on June 24, however those events have been cancelled for the past two years due to gathering restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grenville en Fête is presented by the local recreation committee and the village municipality.
