More Than Potatoes

Posted June 15, 2009 by Katie Blais

PEI_formatted I have wanted to go to Prince Edward Island since I was 10 and read Anne of Green Gables. I wanted to go live on a farm with Miranda, wear braids, and attend a one-room school house with Gilbert.  Prince Edward Island seemed like a quaint little fairy tale isle. Taking a peek at what is happening on the island this summer inspires me to pack my bags and book a trip to PEI today!

First off, starting June 18 and going through September 26 there is The Charlottetown Festival, a three month event filled with theater productions (even an Anne of Green Gables musical number), live music, and other art related fun!  The week of August 13 to 22 is Old Home Week where you can check out livestock shows, concerts, and this year the 50th anniversary of the Gold and Saucer Harness race, which is a big deal on PEI.  Summer is also the time to check out the white sand beaches of Cavendish Beach and the amazing golf courses throughout the island.

Beaches, concerts, quaint seaside villages? Channel your inner Anne Shirley and head up for a memorable summer vacation!
