A damp and rainy December day could not deter the GT Signs crew, (Andrew and Blair) from their annual assignment of hanging the Kids Winter Banners.
As 2018 marks Richmond’s bicentennial this edition of banners feature the 200th logo with the sponsor name on one side and the young artists creation and name on the opposite side.
A total of 27 banners were installed along McBean and Perth Streets. When added to the existing 17 anniversary banners the Village is now graced with a total of 44 bicentennial themed banners, the most ever displayed for any event. These banners represent just one of the many 200th Anniversary activities held to date with more events scheduled as we count down to the big 2018 weekend party on June 15-17.
The Richmond Village Association and the 200th Organizing Committee wish to thank all the participating children and families for their great artistic creations. We also thank all of the local businesses who make this event possible with their generous sponsorship.
