The Holdin’ Ground Festival and Klondyke Days – 2010

The Holdin’ Ground Festival and Klondyke Days in Bay Roberts are over for another year. With so many things still happening in the town and in the region, it seems more like a beginning than an ending.

Some of the highlights of this year’s events included starting the festival with the launch of the “Holdin’ Ground Project” ( holdingroundproject.com) and “The Pigeon Inlet Quilt.” (Pigeon Inlet Quilt Showing ). The two theatre productions: “ A Time in Pigeon Inlet” and ” Salt-water Moon” were very successful and well attended. The Klondyke Days Opening Parade was held on a perfect day with an enthusiastic turn out. (Photos on Flickr)  Supersports Weekend went very well. Fans enjoyed the tribute concert to Neil Diamond at the Canadian Legion. Shopping Days at the Klondyke with the Dragon Boat Race and the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue Display were enjoyed by everyone.

Even though it poured rain during the closing fireworks, there was a tremendous turn out and many said it was the best fireworks they had ever seen!
