This weekend marks the 5th Annual Quayside Festival and Sale and I have to admit that this was one of my favourite community events last year. And it wasn’t just because I sold a tonne of my unwanted cast-offs – it was because it was a nice sunny day and hanging out by the river is always a nice thing to do.
Says event organizer and Quayside Board president, James Crosty, “Over 7,500 people are expected to stroll more than a kilometer along the Boardwalk from the River Market to Quayside Park at the Rail Bridge. It is an event for the entire family-both young and old alike, or friends to enjoy being together while enjoying an incredible day of shopping, recycling, lively music, fun, festivities, eating, farmers market and so much more.”
The 5th Annual Festival is Saturday, August 20th, 2011 from 10am to 3pm and goes rain or shine. For more info, check out the Quayside Community Board’s website at www.quaysideboard.com.
