A Street Festival held in Kamsack on August 18 was described by organizers as a success.
“This was our first year running ‘Sunday on the Street’ and by all accounts it was a successful event,” said Shanley Allard, recreation director and prime organizer of the event. “It was great to see so many people and families come out and enjoy the day.
“We hope to turn Sunday on the Street into an annual event that promotes the different cultures in Kamsack and brings our community together to celebrate Kamsack and all we have to offer. I’d like to acknowledge everyone that came out and supported Sunday on the Street and hope to see you out again next August.”
