This great event is back on Saturday August 5/9-4 P.M. and one we look forward to. My wife and I love this event and try not to miss it. As I have explained in past blogs, I grew up in Erieau as my parents had a cottage on the Bay. It still feels like home to me and brings back some great memories. Some of the same families are still there in summer cottages and although it has grown since I was young, it still has so much charm. Erieau is a popular Resort Location in Chatham-Kent, located on the north shore of Lake Erie and the south shore of Rondeau Bay. It is well known for its great fishing, boating and sandy beaches.
The tree lined boulevard, one kilometer in length is located down the centre of the village and was the original location of the CNO railway tracks that transported coal to various locations from the hull of the Alexander Leslie that arrived in port.This picturesque area is the site of the Art Displays with a stage set up to enjoy some entertainment.
Molly and OJ’s Restaurant is a mainstay of the village and a favorite eating spot to enjoy Lake Erie perch and pickeral. There are also other restaurants to enjoy a meal, an appetizer or a cold drink like the Sandbar, the local variety store and the newer local brewery, The Bayside that has a lovely patio overlooking the Bay.
There are over 100 vendors scheduled to be at the event with entertainment, demonstrations, and lots to see and do. If you have never been, make a day of it. This year marks the return of the popular Cottage and Home Tour featuring 5 locations from 10A.M.-2 P.M. Tickets are available at several locations and also the day of the event.
