This week has been busy in Cobourg – and that includes Saturday July 8.  Two major events were scheduled: a Food and Music Festival downtown and an Old Fashioned Picnic - intended for families - that was held in Victoria Park.  The DBIA managed Food and Music Festival was well attended but the Picnic in the Park – not so much.  Both had entertainment but there was a lot more food to be had on King Street.  There were a lot of food trucks and booths plus the existing restaurants were also participating.  I was also impressed with the signs giving directions to more distant venues plus pointing to washrooms.  Meanwhile, the beach was not near as busy as it usually is on the second Saturday in July. See the photos below.
