Three Festivals Receive Funding 


Three festivals in Windsor-Essex have received provincial funding.

Hogs for Hospice in Leamington, which is being held this weekend, has received $48,145 from a second round of funding through Celebrate Ontario. 

The Diversity Tour, which was held in Windsor last weekend, received $13,656.

The Polonia Fest, which was held at the Polish Beach Club in Colchester on Canada Day weekend, also received $1,113. 

Minister of Tourism Culture and Sport Lisa MacLeod says every dollar invested by the province results in almost $21 of visitor spending.
