Did someone say PARTY?!
This week was CRAZY! We spent it all outside with our awesome listeners at BBQs, car washes, and beaches! It can’t get much better than that, baby! Okay, well maybe if Blake Shelton brought Gwen Stefani to CBMF with him, we MIGHT reconsider that statement…
Our week started out early Sunday morning with Jenny B going to the Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank for their Annual Giant Yard Sale and BBQ. What an incredible selection of odds and ends and treasures there were! The Hot Dogs and Burgers were absolutely delicious too! We met so many new faces and helped out a lot of people that really needed it. The yard sale was supposed to only be happening until 1pm… however, it ended up being so popular that even at 3pm… it was still going strong!! Wow!!
Next, Jenny B picked up her co-pilot, Lauro, and headed over to the Westin Nova Scotian Hotel for their Father’s Day Brunch and Kitchen Party! There was sooo Much Food!! And it was presented so beautifully! (I admit, I may have had to wipe away the drool a few times when we toured the kitchen..!) Since it was Dad’s special day, they had Motorcycles, Construction ‘Zones’, and lots of other things that Dad loves! There was even an ENTIRE Pig! A total feast fit for a King!! We met a lot of super Hot Country Fans and many of them even ended up wearing our Cowboys Hats to lunch!
After Brunch, it was off to the Trend and Fashion Expo upstairs at the Westin! There were vendors showcasing everything from Hair, Nails, Clothing, Perfume, Jewellery, Vacation Hot Spots, and Bags, to the newest and hottest fashions from local designers. There was even an exciting fashion show! It was a fabulous (and dangerous.. haha) event to see when you Loooove Shopping as much as we do!
We found this Super Fan at the Trend and Fashion Expo and couldn’t pass up the photo op!
Thursday night, we headed to the waterfront to pass out FREE ADMISSION to our Canada Day Hot Country Loft at the Lower Deck, Station Swag, and CHIPPIES! If you’re ready for a REAL Country Party on the Canada Day long weekend, make sure you come find us next week and we’re gonna HOOK. YOU. UP! We met a Hot Country super-fan and her awesome boyfriend – who just deployed for seven months. We’ll be thinking about you and we thank you SO MUCH for your service!
Look at her rockin’ that hat! Can’t wait to see you at CCMF, girl!
Friday’s Sunshine made it the perfect day for us to hop in our Cruiser and Hit the Road!! First stop, to make sure our tummies were happy and full, we went to Subway by the Halifax International Airport!
Next, we spent the day seeking out some HOT Spots and giving out freebies to our amazing listeners… YOU Guys!! We headed all the way to Oakfield Provincial Park to hand out some station swag and Free Subway Sub cards to people enjoying the day at the beautiful beaches and picnic areas there.
These Country fans were super pumped to pick up one of our brand spankin’ new Snapbacks!
We then hit the road again and found ourselves at Fisherman’s Cove in Eastern Passage, NS! What a great spot!! There’s a gorgeous beach as well as an entire boardwalk of little shops and restaurants to check out! We really enjoyed reading up on the history of the area as well as the ghost stories and folklore posted around the grounds. Lots of fans stopped by to see us — 103.5fm blaring out the windows! We gave away chips, sunglasses, phone cases, and even a few CD’s! Definitely somewhere we want to come back to this summer!
Saturday was SUPER fun! Lauro went to a BBQ for National Canadian Miss Central Nova Scotia, Mikayla Marriott, at Kent in Bayer’s Lake! Mikayla was raising money for her trip to the National Canadian Miss Pageant! After the BBQ, Lauro headed down to Wilson’s Gas Bar in Clayton Park for the Scout’s Car Wash! They were fundraising for the 2017 Scouts Jamboree – that’s going to be held here in HALIFAX!
Mikayla & Lauro!Good luck, girl! Us here at Hot Country 103.5 are rooting for you!
Lauro thought our CRV from Colonial Honda needed a bath!
This week is just one HUGE Canaan Country Music Fest Pre-Partaaaay! On Thursday, we are heading out to the Waverley Green Open House because our buddy TJ King is doing a FREE show! He’s closing out the Nova Scotia stage at CCMF! On Friday, we’ll be at the Hot Country Loft for Canada Day. Come dance to your FAVE country tunes with your FAVE country station. The only place you’ll find us on Saturday is CCMF #sorryNOTsorry! On Sunday, we have a super secret surprise for you. You better keep your eyes on our social media and your ears tuned in! See ya next week!
