38 Newfoundland and Labrador communities to participate in Festival On Fire

The Festival On Fire, Newfoundland and Labrador's second annual Folklife Festival, starts this week. To date, 38 communities from all across the province are participating in the festival, with bonfire night celebrations from Channel-Port aux Basques to Rigolet to Pouch Cove!

I'm delighted to see so many communities listing their bonfires, and I'm hoping that a lot of families get out there to support the work being done by town councils and volunteer fire departments to keep this tradition alive.

The events kick off tonight, November 1st, in Labrador City, with most community bonfires happening on November 5th.
