Canandaigua's Centennial Celebrations Continue!
I know, it's a bit late to be blogging about our city's centennial celebration going on all this year, but better late than never, right? I think so....LOL....! Anyway, it is a big deal for our fair city and one I should have brought up long before now. We've had a myriad of events all year including 100 days of music entertainment downtown, an upcoming tour of historic homes right here on North Main St. (including one house right next door, built by the same builder as our lovely B&B), and to cap it off, our annual Christkindl Market in November on the front lawn of the Granger Homestead. Thousands of people have visited Canandaigua in the Finger Lakes this year, hopefully having enjoyed an event or two while here. If not, there's still time, so make your plans now. This city, where we have called home for 14 years, is special, beautiful (and will be more beautiful when construction is complete in the business district...), and full of historic charm. It has that warm, small town feel. It is welcoming and friendly. It isn't perfect, but I couldn't imagine being anywhere else and am proud to wish Canandaigua a very, very happy birthday. May the next 100 years be even more spectacular than the first. Congratulations!
