Kick up your heels at the Lily Festival

The Scottish dancers kicked up their heels to entertain the crowd on Friday afternoon at the Neepawa and Area Lily Festival. This year’s festival saw big increases in overall attendance for the meals, the parade and in the entertainment tent.

Fun for all at festival

Last week end, Neepawa was buzzing as the annual Neepawa and Area Lily Festival took over.  One block of Hamilton Street was closed and tents were set up to house entertainment, the festival headquarters and the lily show. Vendors also lined the street.  This year’s  Neepawa and Area Lily Festival offered something for everyone, including a large parade. Despite some rain on Saturday, the festival was well attended and administrator Audrey Heffell said that they were happy with how the festival went and received numerous positive compliments.
