Screechin' in St John's


During my stay on the rock, I encountered many different people from all walks of life and from all around the world. Many people have heard of Newfoundland's George Street Festival. It’s just about the only place I want to be in August. George Street, in downtown St. John’s, is the focal point of the city’s nightlife. The pubs and taverns lining this historic cobblestone street offer everything from traditional Newfoundland music to the latest rock music. The festival features five nights of live outdoor entertainment featuring some of Newfoundland’s top acts.
