“We’ve had two great years so far, but really it’s only driven us to push harder to create an event that makes the people of New Brunswick proud of where they live” says Ray Gracewood, Chairman of the Area 506 committee. “We’ve had a great time developing the event for this year and we’re incredibly excited to announce the details so that people can book the time and set their schedules for the New Brunswick day long weekend.”
