You can even watch kites flying in the breeze or fly one yourself, get your photo taken in the “photo booths” or buy a flower for $2 or 3/$5.  
We will stop for lunch at the Evangeline Inn & Motel’s Café, renowned for fresh fish chowder, scones, burgers and homemade pies, etc.  
The café (known as Stirlings) maintains the character and atmosphere of yesteryear with very reasonable rates. Then it’s off to Hennigar’s Farm Market (near Wolfville) for fresh produce, baked goods or an ice cream.
