LaSalle Mayor Pleased With Top 100 Honour

LaSalle Mayor Ken Antaya is thrilled one of the town's festivals has made it onto the Top 100 Festivals and Events list in Ontario for 2018.

The LaSalle Craft Beer Festival along with the Tecumseh Corn Festival and Carrousel of Nations all made the list.

Antaya says the recognition means a lot to town staff, primarily the Parks and Rec Department.

"For something like this it's recognition from an outside party saying you guys are doing a pretty good job in relation to promoting this type of event in your community," says Antaya.

He adds, "What we want to do is show them what LaSalle is all about and come and visit us. You just never know when investors are out there or people that want to relocate. We're getting a lot of people that come into the community, like it and simply want to be here and re-locate."

The festival is entering its fifth year and takes place Thanksgiving weekend at the Vollmer Centre.
