Animaritime 2013 another success for Atlantic Fans

Animaritime is once again over, and despite the sadness of leaving our friends, we have all the great memories that we built up over an incredible weekend. Now that the Animaritime staff have returned to their homes, and have had a chance to catch their breath, some official number crunching has begun. We are super-pumped that Animaritime 2013 is a record-breaking year for just about every goal we set for ourselves. Thanks to all of our amazing attendees, the event drew 1702 people - that's over 450 more than last year! 1127 of those came on Friday, our biggest opening day ever! Not only that, but we were able to raise $2100 for IWK Health Centre Foundation in the charity auction and $400 for the Boys and Girls Club of Fredericton between the Garage Sale and the Silent Auction.

So thank you to everyone who braved that cold wet weekend. We know we had a blast and we hope you all did too. And a special thank you to the city of Fredericton, who I'm sure will remember this Canada Day weekend for a little while.
