Chester Merchants Press Release


Monday's Remembrance Day ceremony was a corker and the weather cooperated. The parade square was packed, there was a "fly by" by an old fighter plane and the band played on. It was epic.

It's Gingerbread time again ! The Festival kicks off in just over 2 weeks. There are several divisions for the gingerbread house entries and each winning entry will win a $150 prize thanks to our generous sponsors. Blow the cobwebs out of the oven and get busy.
