Smart’s Marina, the artisans of the Inroads Tour and the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation all spent months planning annual events for Labour Day Weekend, only to be greeted with news of Ernesto’s northward spread of cold, wet weather right in the middle of their events.

For the Inroads tour people, the weather did not prove to be a hindrance since most of the artisans were showing their work indoors. Attendance at the tour was up over last year.

At Smart’s Marina, the rain did not stop the fish from biting, and the hardy fishermen told themselves the weather was ideal for bass fishing.

The Ardoch Algonquin’s third annual Pow wow got off to a booming start on Saturday, and although it was a struggle, spirits remained high throughout the rain showers that came on late Saturday, and persisted right through Sunday.
