Comments Off on Springtime in Paris | More than a weekend… rather, a lifestyle

Paris Ontario is described as “The prettiest little town in Ontario”. Along the banks of the Grand River merging with the Nith River, this thriving community reflects the changing urban landscape born from traditional values of the past.

Each year the Kiwanis Club of Paris gets together with a cadre of volunteers to bring a celebration of new growth, the release of butterflies

and good old country fair hospitality.

The Paris Port Dover Band marches in the highland dancers and dignitaries and vendors from near and far display their wares, treats and artisan excellence.

County of Brant Mayor Bailey welcomes the thousands that attend and extends his pride to the people and community that make this happen. MPP Will Bouma, Miss Paris Fair 2018, Kaitlyn Clark  and Springtime Festival Chair, David Mahn follow with equal enthusiasm.

It’s about the people: the young highland dancers; vocalist Shaun Mulrain; and the pipers that entertain; the families and their kids that look forward to this event annually; and the stunning artisan exhibitors.

Paris is polished and poised, modern and reflective of the significant history that established this piece of heaven. We mustn’t forget that Paris Ontario was the other end of the very first long distance telephone conversation by Alexander Graham Bell originating a few kilometres south in Brantford.

The County of Brant has many facets to it’s 100 carat jewel, more of which will be explored in a later story. For now we appreciate the launch of Spring and thank the folks of Paris for reminding us how to appreciate what we have in our neighbourhood that is incredible.
