Bridgefest draws thousands

There was another run-walk yesterday…Bridgefest which has been deemed a big success.

The festival over the weekend celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Confederation Bridge and Canada’s 150th.

Most of the events were held yesterday including the Bridge Walk and Run to raise money for the IWK. Over 5,000 people walked or ran across the bridge raising over $195,000 for the IWK Foundation. They had people from around the Maritimes as well as 15 American states and even Australia.
