Angela has been a fan of Fredericton’s culture scene for many years dating back to her early employment with First Night and the Harvest Jazz & Blues festival. This cultivated an interest in live music and local culture. She gained a greater exposure and appreciation of Fredericton’s cultural scene and the people behind it through her work with Fredericton Tourism and as the City’s Cultural Development Officer. Angela will share some of the local cultural ‘goings on’ in Fredericton.
“Emma, what’s going on for music in town this week?” Hearing that question asked time and time again is what inspired Emma to start a blog on this city's eclectic music scene. Because of her love of music she has made every effort to know what’s going on where and when, and she wants to share that with you. Music Runs Through It is Emma's musical blog, and your musical resource to know where you can find some of the amazing musical entertainment offered in Fredericton. There’s so much going on – get out there and let the music run through you too!

Heather has been telling people where to go for over 20 years. Growing up on the island of Grand Manan she quickly got used to pointing visitors in the direction of the best hometown attractions. Her father’s work frequently brought her family to Fredericton and she quickly fell in love with the stately homes and rich history of New Brunswick’s picturesque capital city. Since 2009 she’s written The Glad Girl a lifestyle blog focusing on the goings on in her little corner of the world. She looks forward to sharing her adventures with you!

Mary Ellen Hudson is a long time resident of Fredericton and works for the City of Fredericton’s Tourism Division. Several years ago she had the opportunity to reduce her job scope to a half time position allowing her to spend more time with her kids. This has allowed for lots of time for her and her girls to become “tourists in their own town” exploring all of the many kid-friendly activities and attractions in the city. Mary Ellen will be sharing her experiences and photos as she and her girls Julia and Katie (and often the whole family – including husband Steve and puppy, Poppy) explore Fredericton and the many fun (& often free!) things to do here.
“I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter” sings Tori Amos. Sonya Hull feels the same way! She is a self-described winter girl, and when the temperatures drop and her puffy coat comes out of the closet, it feels so right! She grew up on skis @ Crabbe Mountain and it is still her favorite winter place to be with her husband Brent and her two boys Erik and Luke. She can also be found snowshoeing with her dog Milo in the woods of Odell Park, and tromping about the UNB Woodlot. Let it SNOW!!
