The Downtowns Miramichi – Newcastle Business District will be hosting a Show and Shine around the Queen Elizabeth Square. The event was scheduled for July 5th, as part of Celebrate Canada events. Due to the arrival of Post Tropical Storm Arthur we had to postpone the event. It is now scheduled for Saturday August 2nd,2014 from 10:00 till 4:00 pm, with a river cruise wrapping up the day.
The square will be closed to the regular vehicle traffic. This will be wonderful opportunity for cars owners to share their joy of vehicles with car buffs of all ages. If you registered in advance for the date of July 5th, that’s great. If you did not register as of yet, car owners can register on site.
We will be offering some children activities, and a car assemble puzzle for children. Children with their parents will go to various businesses and pick up car pieces come back to the garage area located in the park and assemble their vehicle. Everyone will receive a participation prize.
There will be live performances on through out the day. The list of performers is attached in the schedule. We will also have some venders on site to add to the event.
To finish of the day at 4:30 we are asking vehicles to assemble in the parking lot in front of the Newcastle Library for the cruise around the river. The Miramichi Police Force will escort the parade. The route due to the Centennial Bridge closure will be a bit different this year we will travel on the south side of the river starting and finishing in Newcastle Business District.
