Several parks and attractions extending their season into October

The New Brunswick government says nine provincial parks and eight attractions are extending their season into the October long weekend.

Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister John Ames says in a release that growing the fall shoulder season is part of a larger tourism growth strategy currently under development.

Government also says September and October are high season for ports of call to New Brunswick, and the growth in the cruise market in Saint John has created a demand for fall excursions throughout the Fundy region.
