Here we are another month down and more travels in sight for Candy Palmater. Currently Candy is grounded for a couple weeks at home in Toronto gearing up for events and projects for many months to come, going into 2018. June 2017 is in the next month with many events from coast to coast to coast in Canada.
First we look at what Candy is working on. Writing the National annual event for National Aboriginal Day on June 21st. Candy writes the entire 5 hour live broadcast and this year there are 16 hosts, 8 stages (cities) across the nation. Candy will be hosting the Halifax stage in addition to writing the live broadcast. The broadcast will be on APTN. (Aboriginal Peoples Television Network)
Candy will be taping The Debaters on June 20th in Halifax as well. This is taped in front of a live audience at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium and will be aired on CBC radio one.
The many events and gigs Candy will be on tour for are for Corporate and Private events – BUT, if in the maritime provinces if you wanted to see Candy the APTN and CBC events open to the public. we have no other public events noted at this time. July 2017 Candy Palmater will be speaking at the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), so maybe we will see you there.
Candy is busy with many writing projects: Live broadcast, Magazines, book projects and others we cannot speak publicly just yet. But hold on, the details will be released soon. Be sure to subscribe to the website for free updates.
Saturday July 26th is the infamous annual Halifax pride parade. Thousands of people will come out to watch, participate, show their alliance and unity that really, one love is human nature, and this day marks this fact. Halifax pride parade is the 4th largest in Canada. That is awesome considering we are a tiny province and our person per province tally is lower than most. We sure know how to pump out an awesome pride festival and parade. See you Saturday 1:30PM parade start time. MORE DETAILS CLICK HERE.
Candy , a proud 2 spirited woman, has united for a special campaign with BBBS Halifax (Big Brothers Big Sisters). She is the face of the their campaign and will be on the big float, helping to gather clothing donations from the parade goers to help the kids that are in desperate need of help.

Just wanted to share with all of you some pictures from yesterday.

They can be found on The Candy Show Fan Page on Face Book, and I wanted to share them with you here:
