SOUTH MOUNTAIN – As the summer rolls along so do the rotating Meet Me On Main Street events in North Dundas.
Last week on Wed., July 20 it was South Mountain’s turn to take a summer break and enjoy some quality time with family, friends and neighbours on South Mountain’s Main Street.
A bandstand, tables and chairs, vendors selling supper, and great weather made the once-a-year occasion fun for South Mountain and Mountain residents.
The entertainment was provided by award winning local recording artist Cory M. Coons.
While the band played their songs including Cory’s latest single called “Freedom Road”.
The Southgate Church provided a bouncy castle and free cotton candy, and the Rick Cauvier Memorial Park was the place to be to have great summer fun.
As at all of the other Meet Me On Main Street events, North Dundas Mayor Tony Fraser was at the summer event. He said it was nice to see residents being able to get out and get together after all the pandemic restrictions.
The North Dundas Fire Department gave a demonstration on what happens to a kitchen grease fire when water is applied to it; being the worst thing you can do.
Friends of the South Mountain Library Resource Centre had free books for all ages and art and crafts.
Smokie Ridge Vineyard, Humble Beginnings Brewing Co., and King’s Lock Craft Distillery were on hand to showcase their products, while Sandy Row Golf Club, Simply Baked Catering, and the Mountain Township Agricultural Society were busy keeping everybody fed.
