A Nova Scotia Travelook Travelog by Sharon Hoge.
Take a picturesque Victorian bandstand, add a tent high on the hill and a stage on a pier among sailboats in the harbor, toss in world-class singers, guitar strummers and fiddlers and you begin to describe Nova Scotia’s wonderful annual Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. Set in the charming UNESCO World Heritage fishing village, the festival provides sights and sounds that have been attracting sightseers and music lovers for a quarter century. With the 26th annual festival planned for August 5-8, 2011, now is the time to start reserving inn and bed and breakfast rooms in order to attend this treat for eyes and ears.
