Taste of the Boardwalk

June 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

The first Friday of the Summer season is already sure to go down in history!

Mayor Don Darling & Council will be pulling the official 5pm work whistle announcing to those near and far that the weekend is here!

The City of Saint John will be hosting a FREE BBQ and each Boardwalk Restaurant will provide free samples off of their summer menu. We will top it off with the largest pedestrian street party unique to the Maritimes, and a FIREWORKS display that will light up the sky at dusk!

Featured performers:

Shakedown Combo perform with the attitude that Rockabilly can be modern and contemporary, not simply a sound from past decades revived by cover bands whenever retro becomes fashionable. The band favours original material over reworking the old classics, however they don’t dismiss the original rockers, or the 1980s revivalists.

 Pretty in Pink step out of their Delorean with feathered hair and perfect pitch, blinding you with science.  They are your hoverboard.  They are your danger zone.  Aaah, the 80s – that happy little decade between social activism and self-loathing grunge.  A time when the Coreys were king and Tom Selleck set the standard for moustaches.  While the cold war raged, we solved Rubik’s Cubes and took roll call, Bueller…Bueller…Bueller.
