Friday July 18th on The Morning News


Rad Pride kicks off this weekend – it’s an alternative festival for members of the queer and trans communities that focuses more on politics than parties.  At 6:45 organizer Jude Ashburn tells us how and why this event aims to make Halifax a safer, more inclusive place for all.

What a performance from Nova Scotia’s Special Olympians at the 2014 Special Olympics national games in Vancouver! Team NS came back with 67 medals! At 7:15 we’ll meet some of the participants and get a recap from Michael Greek, President and CEO of Special Olympics Nova Scotia.

SeaandBeScene.com is more than a website; it’s a one-stop resource for events, entertainment and all things that celebrate Atlantic Canada.  At 7:45 human dynamo/Sea and Be Scene founder Stephanie Beaumont comes in to chat about how much the site has grown since she created it four years ago.

Step away from the hamburger and freshen up your grill! At 7:15 Chef Craig Flinn joins us with a truly Nova Scotian take on deliciousness between two buns. Get ready to meet “the fog buster” just in time for a perfect BBQ weekend.

We’ve featured some great summer camps on The Morning News but none rock quite like this one! The Rebel Girl Halifax Rock Camp is a place for young girls to come together and essentially form a rock band from start to finish all in 5 days! From learnign to play an instrument to creating a band logo, it’s all there. At 8:45 we’ll meet a camp counsellor and camper to rock out with us!
