Celebrate New Brunswick Day in the FIFA FanZone


July 23, 2014
 
MONCTON - Moncton is hosting a New Brunswick Day party as part of the FanZone celebrations for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014. Monday, August 4, City Hall Plaza will honour both our Province and the excitement to come with the FIFA tournament being held at the Moncton Stadium.

“The first week of August gives Monctonians so many reasons to celebrate,” explained Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc. “We’re so pleased to be welcoming FIFA, and thought it only fitting to combine the excitement of the U-20 tournament with the party we’re hosting in honour of New Brunswick Day.”

Moncton’s New Brunswick Day party will take place in the FIFA FanZone on Monday, August 4, featuring children’s entertainment and a play zone, face painting, food vendors and the New Brunswick Day concert on the main stage featuring home-grown talent: Izzy and The Prohibition, Les Païens, as well as Samantha Robichaud and The Divorcees.
