It is time to haul out the leather and rev up the engine for another edition of Digby’s famous Wharf Rat Rally. This event has quickly grown to become an important part of the local tourist season and Annapolis Royal is ready to welcome the Wharf Rats to the area.
If you are looking for a chance to ride, there will be a couple of opportunities to experience our region. For those looking for a guided tour, on Saturday and Sunday a group will leave Digby and travel to various destinations around Annapolis Royal.
As a unique highlight, Annapolis Royal offers Wharf Rats the greatest photo op ever! At the Historic Gardens you and your bike will have the chance to go “Hawg Wild in the Gardens”. Imagine rumbling in to get your photograph taken among the flowers. For the “You & Your Bike” photo opp, there are two options: Self Serve & Full Service. Self Serve allows you to bring your motorcycle into the Gardens and take your own photos, while Full Service provides VIP treatment with preferred locations and a photographer to accompany you. It’s a terrific and unique opportunity! Get the details HERE.
While you are in Annapolis Royal, take some time to stroll the waterfront shopping district and to visit our many attractions and museums. Be sure to check out the Annapolis Royal Photo Exhibit at the Historic Gardens and the O’Dell House Museum all weekend long. On Saturday morning, don’t miss the Farmer’s & Trader’s Market – the largest outdoor market in Nova Scotia! Also on Saturday, outside the Sinclair Inn Museum, stop by to see Ken “Hewing to the Line” – watch this novice timber framer “square up” a beam from a log, and try your hand at wielding a broad axe or adze.
Join us in Annapolis Royal this weekend!
