ANTIGONISH, N.S. - It’s not quite to the scale of last summer’s national Special Olympic Summer Games coming to Antigonish, but it’s a “big deal,” and will see a large influx of people visiting the area in the midst of the summer season.
The provincial 2019 Nova Scotia 55+ Games will take place in Antigonish and surrounding area from July 31 to Aug. 3; coincidentally, the exact dates of last year’s Special Olympic event.
