The merchants of Cow Bay are hosting the fourth annual Cow Bay Days on July 4, with the fun taking place between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

“The whole idea is to give back to the community and celebrate the unique area we get to work in,” said main organizer Connie Jack of Udder Bags, who has been involved with organizing the event for the past three years.

This year, there are 21 merchants participating in the event, putting on activities in the main event area or outside of businesses.

“There will be a cow balloon, which is why our slogan is “Watch for the Cow Balloon”, to recognize which businesses are participating,” explained Jack.

The main event area will be in the parking lot beside Cow Bay Gift Galley, where there will be a bouncy castle, animal balloons, a variety of games and more.

Some of the other activities taking place as part of the event will include barbecues, prize draws, a crab bowl, in-store samples and a photo booth.
