The Trenton Scottish Festival is growing, thanks to a provincial grant.
Quinte West has received $16,500 from the Celebrate Ontario program to support some enhancements to the fall event.
The annual festival features a parade showcasing Pipes and Drum Bands/Brass and Reeds Bands and a long list of events.
Quinte West special events coordinator Karen Parker says the children’s programs and others will be expanded thanks to the new funding.
This year’s festival in September will also have the Canadian Scottish Athletic Federation Women’s Heavy Event Championship featuring Canada’s 10 best heavy event athletes in eight scored events.
