8-8 to 10 Brigus Blueberry Festival, NF

Next stop along the way – Brigus – well known for its Blueberry Festival……alas the Fri-Sat was mostly rain!  But they did have a short parade, a 3’ Blueberry Pie, arts & crafts, food vendors and of course music!  Enjoyed the variety on Sunday afternoon and fireworks at night.  The Dance Parties and evening music is late – starting at 10p and going to the wee hours.
