Now if you’re a regular listener of the show you know, I like so many folks in this part of the world, wear a whole bunch of hats. I’m really lucky though because all of my hats are happy ones. Certainly Sea and be Scene is a blast. I also head up the Tourism Team for the Municipality of Chester so I get to celebrate the 36 wonderful communities you’ll find there, and as a board member for the South Shore Tourism Cooperative – I get to ban together with all kinds of incredible folks from Peggy’s Cove to Barrington to make sure everyone knows everything we’ve got on the go all year round. And I’m hear to tell ya – in case you hadn’t heard – no matter what that thermometer is telling you things are really are heating up here on the South Shore as we are now just days away from NOVA SCOTIA LOBSTER CRAWL 2020.
So on today’s show we’ll do our best to sink our claws into all the amazing events set to roll from February 1st all the way to the 29th. We’ll catch up to Nova Scotia Lobster Crawl’s new festival director Menna Riley to get the scoop on the social media side and hear how you can join in the celebrations. Plus we’ll learn why this whole festival was started in the first place and hear how it’s grown by award-winning and wonderful leaps and bounds with the President of the South Shore Tourism Cooperative Donna Hatt. We’ll also squeeze in a marvelous round of ‘Lobster Movie Trivia’ when the SSTC’s Stephanie Miller Vincent pops in to compete, and we’ll share some cool concert news from one of our favourite east coast artists. Oh yes there’s a ton to get done so I say lets do it… ladies a gentlemen on with show!
