During the institute week on Tuesday night there is a big “family fun fair picnic”. On the final Saturday night there is a community “Family Cape Breton square set dance and ceilidh”. There are many local attractions to enjoy including the famous Peggys Cove. A three hour drive away is the beloved “Anne of Green Gables” town and Musical.
