I wonder if anyone has been to every Festival of Friends event. I’m sure someone in the city has. I’ve only been to a few myself. The Festival of Friends returns for it’s 35th season this weekend coming from Gage Park. The festival lasts three days, Friday August 6th thru Sunday August 8th.
This is the second major festival to happen in Gage Park every year. The other event is the “It’s Your Festival” which happens every Canada Day. As always loads of local vendors will be setting up shops selling their wares and artists jamming long into the night. The carnival will light up the night and the smell of the foods of the world will bring smiles to faces.
The festivals are something that I haven’t done much of in my youth. I have vague memories of going to a festival or two when I was very young, but then stopped through most of the next few years. Only recently have I been going to more, but not very often. I fully intend to change that, having already gone to IYF and having the full intention to go to FoF.
What are you looking forward to at the festival this year? Watching the bands play? Some freshly squeezed lemonade? Maybe sinking your teeth into an elephant ear? I plan on doing all of those things and more.
See you there!
