Festival of banners accepting submissions
The Minden Festival of Banners is accepting submissions for this year's display until the end of the month.
The festival displays hand-painted banners affixed to poles along Minden's main drag and up Bobcaygeon Road during the spring and summer.
With the country celebrating its sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017, the theme this year is Canada 150.
The event is open to those in Grade 3 or older. Student banners – those painted by Grade 3 to 8 students – are returned to their painters at the end of the season. The other banners are auctioned off and proceeds are used to purchase materials for the following year's festival.
Entry forms for both students and adults can be found on the Minden Hills website under cultural centre events athttp://mindenhills.ca/cultural-centre/cultural-centre-events/
Artists are asked to sketch their design on the entry form. The deadline is March 31. Artists whose submissions are chosen will paint their banners at the cultural centre during April and May.
