In our newest series, Sunday Mornings in Moncton, we share lots of events, activities, and local businesses in the Greater Moncton Area. Today we’ve put a little twist on the article which we’ve entitled September Morning in Moncton. We’ll be posting what a September Morning looks like in Moncton and what kind of activities you can find yourself doing throughout the month.
September is a special month in the year. For some people, it’s a bit like the start of a new year, especially if you’re a student or if you have students in your family. September is a time to reflect on how the year has gone so far, and what you can do to keep working on your goals for the remainder of the year.
A typical September Morning in Moncton is crisp and calm. The morning sun, which is peaking out a little later than usual, greets us with signs of fall. The air has cooled. Sweaters and hats are coming out of the closets. Romance is in the air and lots of businesses are gearing up for the busy autumn season!
September Date Ideas
Is there anything better than spending some time at an apple orchard? Verger Belliveau, located in Memramcook, is a fantastic spot for a date, wether it be a September morning or an October afternoon. They are also hosting a special event on Sunday, September 8th which marks the grand opening of the apple u-pick + a free BBQ. Donations will be accepted to help Memramcook Valley Handi-Bus for the disabled.
Jazz Night at Aberdeen
Head over to the Aberdeen Centre on Thursday September 12th to enjoy a romantic evening of live jazz music by Easley Quartet. The ensemble is made up of revered jazz musicians such as Tom Easley on bass, Mark Adam on drums, Geordie Haley and Kevin Brunkhorst on guitars. Playing a mixture of classic jazz and modern groove, the EQ shines a new light on jazz while still honouring its traditions.
Another great September date idea would be to attend an Adult Prom! The non-profit organisation Prom Pretty is hosting their 2nd Annual Parent Prom. I inquired just to make sure and this event is open to all adults, not just parents. This fun event is happening on Friday September 13th at the Cocoa Room in Riverview, starting at 8pm. Tickets are $20 per person and are being sold at 5 Bridges Restaurant and at the door on the day of the event. Attire is semi-formal and a Prom King & Queen will be chosen at the end of the night!
