Happy Canada Day!!!
After such a fun experience, I decided that I needed something to eat. Knowing that there were going to be food trucks at Prince Island Park, I headed towards Eau Claire Market. I walked inside the oh-so-nicely air conditioned market and saw a crowd gathered around a juggler. He was impressive too and the kids loved him. It's amazing the skills that these jugglers have, isn't it? Anyway, I go back outside and do some more exploring. I search for the right food truck to satisfy my need for food. I finally find it across the bridge. I get this giant pineapple with a pineapple smoothie inside. Confused? Don't worry it's easily explained by the picture. I also get a wood-fired vegetarian pizza which I take over to a stage and watch our Native Canadians preform a dance which symbolizes friendship.
With all this under my belt I decided to go get an ice cream and call it quits. I wanted to get some energy in for the firework show (which I can watch from my building). And it is stellar! Unfortunately all the pictures I got of them were terrible so I can't share it with you my lovely audience. I can assure you, however that they are spectacular and a show like that shouldn't be missed.
Oh yes, this is what I did but for all of you who want to check it out again next year, here is what I suggest. Go to Fort Calgary, get a free breakfast and visit the petting zoo. These animals are precious. Also go to the East Village around 7:00 PM and see the performance show. I hear it's excellent. I wanted to go but I'm a fairy not an alien. I can't be in two places at once. So everyone. I hope you enjoyed our nation's birthday. I sure did. How did the rest of you celebrate our or your nation's holiday?
