Mother’s Day at Kilby had record-breaking numbers this year. The weekend kicked off with the arrival of mama Daisy’s jersey calf born in the early morning hours Friday, May 07. On Sunday, the young and young at heart enjoyed a variety of crafts including painting with an artist, candle making, designing crowns and making their very own necklaces. The quaint 1920s style Harrison River Restaurant featured a brunch menu of quiche Lorraine, old-fashioned pancakes and homemade chicken potpie. The big must have for the day was the complimentary strawberry tarts and delicious variety of blackberry jams and jellies made on site during the winter months.
Missed out on the festivities? No worries – Kilby’s first annual Teddy Bear Picnic is right around the corner on Victoria Day, May 24. Bring your teddy bear and enjoy a complimentary picnic lunch, beverage and dessert (regular admission applies). Other activities include a dress up Tickle Trunk, old-fashioned ice cream making, music and decorating sugar cookies.
