Cornwall - Aug. 22, 2011 - Over 600 residents from across Canada, the United States and Europe will be arriving in Cornwall later this week to participate in the Summer Magic 2011 Square Dancing Convention. The three-day event kicks off on Friday, August 26 at the NAV CENTRE, and it will include participants from seven Canadian Provinces and 18 U.S. States, as well as Sweden and Germany. This year’s event marks the third time that the convention has been held in Cornwall.

“It’s a great facility for an event like this,” said event organizer Don Moger. “The convention has grown over 10 per cent every year. It’s such a fun event. That’s why they travel from so far to participate.”

The event will feature six different levels of dancing lead by instructors from California, Texas, Arizona and other parts of the United States.

“We are pleased to welcome the Summer Magic participants to Cornwall,” said Mayor Bob Kilger. “We hope the participants will take some time to explore our great city and discover all of the great things we have to offer.” No public performances are planned during the convention.
