Celebrity Host - Candy Palmater - Live TV Production

Ultimate Host and gay and Native and funny comedian Candy Palmater

Hello friends,

Wow, what a Season we just filmed in Halifax.  The Candy Show Season 5 was a blast, and filled with high energy guests and jammed packed audiences of all walks of like, of all ages and ethnicity. The Candy Show is about love and kindness, and the hilarity of Candy Palmater along with some of Canada’s top Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal musicians and performers.  Season 5 is currently in Post Production, the dates are not set for airing yet, but be sure to subscribe to the website to not miss the Season 5 premiering date.

Immediately after filming The Candy Show, the very next day, Candy Palmater has been filming and getting ready for the Massive televised event of the year on APTN (Aboriginal Peoples Television Network), June 21st – National Aboriginal Day. Halifax hosts the big outdoor stage on the waterfront.  The event is hosted by Candy Palmater and her Co-Host Don Kelly.  Join her for some fun, some Primo entertainment, tons of music  - View the official Website here for more information.   The Event is FREE BTW, so be there Halifax.  The event is live to National TV, for many of you who cannot be there in person, on APTN.
