The town of Melita is getting ready to celebrate the first birthday of two of its most famous citizens.
Sunny the Banana and Breezy the Blue Jay — the giant banana and bird that greet visitors when they enter Melita — were installed one year ago and instantly became a hit with locals and out-of-towners alike.
The 10-metre statue will be highlighted during Melita’s second annual Banana Days from August 5-7. Celebrations include a kids carnival, pancake breakfast, BBQ, street hockey tournament, entertainment and more.
