"Sisters" at the show....

The first show of my "season" was held this past weekend. Outdoor shows are always a concern because of the weather, but this show was also at a new venue, run by new volunteers, the Rotary Club of Sarnia/Bluewaterland, so it was like a brand new show to me even though I have done this particular event for many years. "Art in the Park" moved from its previous location to a larger park "down the road", which offered "on site" parking, and more spacious areas for display. All was extremely well planned, with vendors and shoppers alike being very pleased!
A beautiful day, wide open spaces, food booths, garden areas, and about 100 vendors....
The "Sisters" enjoying their new "habit-at" at this show....along with some of the other creations available that day!
The new park, a beautiful park along the lake, which is really under-used in this area, proved to be an excellent choice for the sale. The Rotary Club should be more than pleased with the visitor turn-out, and the compliments about their show. Their volunteer base was excellent, and it is likely that this event will run at this location for many years to come! Ordering that fabulous weather was a good move, too! :)

  5. You couldn't have picked a more beautiful weekend in a most lovely spot. Glad to hear that the show was a roaring success and a lot of the "sisters" were adopted by new parishes.
    Have a good week.
