The Association of Annapolis Valley Town Criers is pleased to partner with the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, and K-Rock Radio 89.3 to bring an international town crier competition to the Annapolis Valley from the 12th of September to the 17th. In conjunction with many of the Municipal units in the Valley, 23 town criers from Australia, New Zealand, USA (California, Washington and Maryland), Ontario, Nova Scotia, England, and Wales will be in the Valley for this competition. The competition will be held over three days, in Windsor, Annapolis Royal and Grand Pré.
In between the competition days, the criers will have the opportunity to visit the Kentville Farmer’s Market, the Wolfville Farmer’s Market and visit some points of interest in the Canning area. On the Friday, 15th, they will have lunch in Canning and supper in Hall’s Harbour.
It will be five days of noise and colour, and an opportunity for locals to meet and greet visitors from other parts of the world. The town criers of Windsor, Lloyd Smith, Annapolis Royal, Peter Davies and Canning/Berwick, Gary Long are hosting the five day event as part of the Annapolis Valley’s Canada 150 celebrations. Come join the fun!
For more details, please contact Gary Long.

Congratulations to Miss Kelcey Hiltz, Princess Canning 2106!
On behalf of the Canning Village Commission, businesses, and residents we
would like to congratulate Miss Kelcey Hiltz for being selected as 2nd Lady
in Waiting to Queen Annapolisa the 84th! The Canning float was also selected
as First Artistic Princess Float during the parade.
This is a wonderful accomplishment and testament of how Kelcey has shown to
be a graceful, confident leader and role model for the youth to follow, as
well as being a dedicated representative for the Village. Kelcey has made Canning
Village very proud and we look forward to seeing her and her child
attendant, Lyla Holt, at various events throughout the Annapolis Valley
throughout the year. Please support Kelcey as she visits events throughout
