Murphy’s Heroes on the Water was back for another year, celebrating the military and their families. The event was held on June 25 at the Pembroke Marina, and featured live music, a bouncy castle, beer and food, balloons, a rock climbing wall, glitter tattoos and a photo booth, all free for soldiers and their loved ones. The event is held to show the appreciation Murphy Ford and its partners have for the military and their families. The new location also helped bridge the gap between Garrison Petawawa and the City of Pembroke by bringing military members down to the waterfront. The third annual event was sponsored by Murphy Ford, East Side Mario’s, Royal Lepage Edmonds and Associates, the City of Pembroke and Moncion’s Metro.
