I went to the Prince Albert Street Fair last weekend and I had a wonderful time. All of Central Ave was shut down and there was music, people and excitement everywhere. It was my first time at the Fair and I was not sure what to expect, but it was more than worth the trip. I drove up from Saskatoon, and from the amount of people who visited me I was not the only one who had the same idea.
There were literally thousands of people coming and going all day, a steady stream of new faces all day long. I had no idea the event was so well attended. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised considering all the activities, and sales. There were 3 open stages with all kinds of music and dancing, the First Nations dancing is by far my favorite. The people were amazing very friendly and welcoming, in fact much friendlier than when I lived there in the late 70’s. Of course maybe people were nicer because I was not as big a dick as I was in the 70’s, because as a teenager I knew everything. Not sure what happened because I definitely do not know as much now.
I also took some video while I was there and I’ll get it on my YouTube channel soon as I get a chance
Any way I want to thank Lucy James and the other people who worked so hard organizing and putting on such a first class event . I had a great time and I’ll be coming back next year. Hope to see you there.
