    The St Parish festival info up here is for the 2016 one- do you happen to have the 2017 info?

      Hey Abigail! Thanks for letting me know! That must have been my mistake. I thought that was the 2017 information; I have yet to come across 2017 information, so I’ve removed that listing from the post and will continue searching. We’ll be sure to add it if we find it!
