As school wraps up, many of us start to think about the things we love most about summer. Perhaps you think of a family vacation, Tunstall Bay beach swim, or simply watching the summer sunsets. I’ll tell you an event that I’m thinking about: Bowfest!
My school community project was to get involved with the Bowfest Committee, to find a great theme and help plan the parade.
This year, like others, there is a voting box at the Snug Cove General Store for the residents of Bowen to vote on the Bowfest theme. We would love to hear from you! So please tell your friends, family, and neighbours to hop, skip, and jump their way down to the store and make their votes. The options are: rainforest, up In the air, and farm.
The Bowfest team is hoping to bring back some of the glory of the old Bowfest days by making the parade bigger. We hope to see lots of new faces participating in the parade. We encourage neighbourhoods, groups, and teams to come up with creative and fun floats for the whole community to see. If you have a great idea, please contact Bowfestonbowen@gmail.com.
