A Busy Thursday Evening!

We went to a community party put on by our local councillor. There were free hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones and much, much more! There was music and a petting zoo, face painting and some exotic animals. The girls had a ride on a horse-drawn wagon. As always, they were all smiles!
Music in the Air!
We didn't stay very long because we had lots more to see and do. The Beach's Jazz Festival was on and we didn't want to miss it! Parking down there would have been impossible, so we took the subway and then a bus to get there. The street was closed to cars and there were lots of people, all walking down the middle of the road and everywhere else as well. The sound of jazz bands filled the air. The sights, the sounds and smells - all created a special evening, not to be forgotten! The girls enjoyed themselves immensely! (Sorry! Too much excitement! I didn't get any photos!) The Jazz Festival was still going strong when we decided to walk down to the lake. By this time it was already dark, but still fun to walk along the boardwalk since it is lit up every few feet or so. I think we will have to come back to the beach before the girls leave. It is an interesting place to walk and see the sights! We had some donuts and drinks and then took the bus and train back home. We were all very tired! Well, at least I was! It was a long evening, but well worth it!
