put your dancing shoes on....

Fri Jun 23, 2006 Miss Vicky 

There's a lot going on this weekend!

Mechanicsville Days takes place in Laroche Park, starting this evening with a beer tent and music this evening. This two day family event is to raise money to upgrade the playground for youth and children's programs. Saturday's program starts at 1pm and includes the RCMP canine unit and mascot as well as children's events. And beer and bands, of course. Remember that if it's a hot day, Laroche Park has a fabulous spash pad for the kids!

On Saturday from 1-4 the Herb Girls will be performing at a family fun dance at the old orange lodge on Rosemount (LOL 126 Lodge, 41 Rosemount Ave). The concert will also feature special guest Russell Levia. People are enouraged to bring used walking or running shoes for Sole Responsibility, which collects shoes for refugees in Darfur. This will also be a fundraiser for the Hintonburg Hip Hop program. Tickets are $10-20 per family (sliding scale), or $5 for individuals. This should be a fun family event!

UPDATE: And how could I have forgotten?!?! The Westboro Beach Community Association's Black Tie Beach Ball is Saturday night.... on the beach of course! I got a fabulous (stretchy) dress and am looking forward to kicking up my heels in the sand.
