Congratulations to all the people at the City of Moncton who worked so hard to get Moncton selected to the top 7 finalists for "Most Intelligent Community". This award is given annually by the Intelligent Community Forum, a New York based think tank. See my blog for more details
Moncton was successful on the International stage again by doing an awesome job on the Men's World curling and now we are gearing up for AC/DC. I hear that U2 may be on the way this fall as well. We have the International Track and Field World Championships next summer - this is a warm up to the Olympics. There is no question that Metro Moncton is batting well above its weight!
Summer of '09 will see two major concerts coming this way: Bon Jovi in June and AC/DC in August.
On July 4th there was an 3 on 3 basketball event at the Colisium parking lot. I just stumbled upon it (not being a b-ball fan)but it looked like it was well attended and everyone was enjoying themselves.

Each year, balloonists and thousands of their fans come to the Sussex International Balloon Festival held in the Town of Sussex, about 40 minutes south-west of Moncton. it is a great event and if your lucky enough to be there for an early morning or evening "lift-off", it is quite spectacular. Here are a few photos from this years show.
]The Moncton 4 Ice Center was home to some terrific hockey this weekend as the Annual AAA Midget tornamnet was being played. Along with some great hockey, our hotels and restaurants got the benefit of a large group of visitors during their shoulder season. This helps to keep our ocupancy rates high.

It eventually got to here. The cauldron was just down the street from Century21's head office in Vancouver.
In the summer there are always groups playing along the waterfront. Here are the Sons of Gael entertaining the crowd by Bore Park
