#C100SUMMERSTAYCAY Halifax Pride Week Is Finally Here!
Hey guys, it’s Jenna here! Can we talk about this weekend’s weather though?! Honestly couldn’t ask for better! I stopped in at LOTS of staycation spots around HRM in my 2020 Forester Touring from Steele Subaru.
My first stop of the weekend was a Friday morning walk at Point Pleasant Park – a classic! I then took a road trip to Polly’s Cove and if you haven’t been there, you NEED to go. The trails are so nice and lead right to the ocean! Afterwards I visited my new favourite beach at Micou’s Island. I’ve never been here and this is truly a hidden gem in NS. With a walking trail all around the island, a nice clean sandy beach and lots of crabs to dig out of the water - it’s a must for the fam! As if I didn’t visit enough trails Friday, I went to Bell Park in Mount Uniacke for a walk to the lake and then finished my day with some Deedee’s ice cream and lemonade… YUM!
Saturday started off a little overcast but then the sun came out just in time for Halifax Pride’s social site at the Garrison Grounds! There are socially distanced circles, entertainment, and so much more – all following COVID-19 protocols, of course! It was great to celebrate Pride, even if it was a little different this year! I then headed to Bedford to visit Tammy who won last weekend’s Summer Staycation Prize Pack!!! She scored a family meal from Mezza Lebanese Kitchen, an overnight cottage stay with meal from Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa, AND an Oasis cooler with tons of juice and swag! I’ll be giving away one every weekend this summer along with two, week long RV rentals from Fraserway RV! Stay tuned to our Facebook page every weekend to find out how to enter!
I ended my sunny Saturday at Shubie Park where I walked along the canal being SUPER jealous of the people canoeing and kayaking! I definitely need to try it out next time I’m there! My last stop of the day was to D’Arcie in Dartmouth who won one of this week’s Shawarma Summer meals from Mezza. If you want a free chicken shawarma meal for 6, check out our contest page for more details!
I started today by dropping off the second winner’s Shawarma Summer meal! Tracy in Middle Sackville was so excited to try Mezza for the first time and I might be a little biased but the shawarma meal is definitely the way to go for first-timers. Today was a HOT one so I went to one of the hottest spots in the city right now – the Halifax Pride social site again! Today was pack a picnic day and so many people came out with their social bubbles to continue celebrating Pride. COVID won’t ruin our fun this year celebrating so I’ll be back at the Garrison Grounds next weekend for more socially distanced fun! Afterwards I headed to Rainbow Haven beach where I had another picnic and soaked up the sun before the fog rolled in!
I had yet another fun weekend showing you guys some great things to do for your staycation and I can’t wait to do it all again next weekend! I’ll be visiting some of my sponsors and showing some love to them for letting me have all this fun and let me tell you, I can’t WAIT to be hitting the track around the rink at the Zatzman Sportsplex again!
Catch ya next weekend - Jenna
