When the owners of the Holiday County Manor, Jeff Day and Cor Lee, were living in Toronto, they enjoyed many of the cultural events, and one of their favourites was Cinco de Mayo.

They loved the food, the music, the cocktails, and the Pinatas. So, when they realised that the 5th of May is going to be on a Sunday this year, they thought that holding an afternoon party on the front porch and the lawn of the Manor would be a great way to kick off the summer season.

They are inviting their neighbours, and friends from around Frontenac County and the City of Kingston to enjoy some tacos, nachos, empanada’s, take a salsa lesson, dance a merengue, or drink a margarita. It runs from 2pm -6pm. Admission is free and everyone is welcome. Those who register in advance, which can be done at the Holiday Country Manor Facebook page, will automatically be eligible for door prizes.

“We want people to come out and enjoy themselves and have a party on a Sunday afternoon,” said Jeff Day. “It’s been a long winter.”

“We are also kicking off our season. We have a murder mystery night the following Saturday as part of our Mother’s Day Weekend, and then the Sunday brunch on Mother’s Day, which is always busy and this year will be extended to 3 o’clock, so we are excited about that as well,” said Cor Lee.

For those who have never been to the Holiday Country Manor, these events are a great way to be introduced to the historic building in the centre of Battersea that is enjoying a renaissance as a destination spot to eat and spend the night.
