North Rustico

North Rustico (2001 population: 637) is a village located in the northern part of Queens County, Prince Edward Island, Canada.It became an incorporated municipality in 1954. The village is known to locals, as well as many others as "The Crick". Part of the Cavendish beaches and the Duneshores Tourism Association, the village encompasses a large part of the Island's north shore resort area.North Rustico is well known for its Canada Day celebration every year on July 1. The event usually attracts in excess of 10,000 people, which packs the village quite full. It includes festivities in the park, a parade down main street, as well as a boat parade on Rustico Harbour. The celebration is popular among families, teenagers and adults. The day is completed around 10:00 p.m. by a fireworks display over the bay.North Rustico's primary industries are fishing, tourism and agriculture. Located 30 km (19 mi) northwest of Charlottetown, the village is increasingly becoming an exurb with residents commuting to work in the city.Since the 1996 census, the village has witnessed a population decline of 2% in year-round residents. During the short summer tourist season on Prince Edward Island in July and August, the village's proximity to the Prince Edward Island National Park results in a temporary population expansion, with many visitors staying in nearby accommodations.
