This weekend along Wellington

Fri Sep 16, 2005 Miss Vicky 

Lots to do this weekend! Here's your Kitchissippi roundup:

September 17 & 18: Last chance to check out the West End Studio Tour!

September 17 - Parkdale Market Harvest Festival.
12-3pm in the park behind the Market: games and activites for kids, Apple Pie and Cookie baking contest (bakers bring your entry to the table by 12:30), and more!
Evening: Carleton Street Dance

While you're there, take a stroll westward down Wellington for the West Wellington Business Association's Harvest Arts Festival. The've got all kinds of stuff lined up - music, buskers, food, readings and so on.

Between the studio tour and the two Harvest Festivals, Saturday is a perfect day for the Wellington Shuffle.

September 18: learn about our 'hood on the Hintonburg Heritage Walk. Meet at St. Francoise-d'Assise Parish Church (Wellington at Fairmont) at 2pm. Tour is $5 for members of Heritage Ottawa; $10 for non-members.

Sounds good but (for midday, at least) I'm off downtown for the Ladyfest "Not Your Mother's" craft sale. :o)

If it weren't for the fact that it would involve abandoning amckay to the wolves.. er, *children*.. I'd be heading down Sunday as well to check out the Red Tent Collective.

Miss Vicky Sep 16, 2005 01:52 PM said:

Yes, some of the Ladyfest workshops look pretty interesting. And where else can you get yourself a knitted iPod holder?

liss76 Sep 16, 2005 02:00 PM said:

LOL! Now if only I had an iPod!

I'm somewhat intrigued with the whole festival concept and think I may volunteer next year. This is the first year I'd heard of it and it was through a friend who's working on a FAM workshop for Planned Parenthood on Saturday. I want to find out more about how to get space at the craft sale.

I wouldn't mind you leaving me on sunday as well except that we already agreed it's brew day ;-)

Brew Day turned Carrot Day

Grrrr ...

Miss Vicky Sep 18, 2005 06:17 PM said:

Clearly there's a story here.....

Unfortunately yesterday was pretty soggy - most of the Market stuff was rained out. The folks on Wellington persevered - Ray's reptile show was a popular attraction, but by the late afternoon, people were just hopping from one dry spot to the next. More later....

I bought those 4/$10 10lb mix-match bags of carrots/onion/beet/potato at the MArket. I got one of onion and 3 of carrots.

Let's just say that's a helluva lot of carrots! ;o)

The Webgeek Sep 20, 2005 01:34 PM said:

so what, exactly, does one do with 3 bushels of carrots?

amckay Sep 20, 2005 01:50 PM said:

Can them, of course! 1.6 bushels down, 1.4 to go!

Miss Vicky Sep 20, 2005 03:06 PM said:

HINT: the Webgeek really likes carrot cake.
