Yesterday I hit up the Lilac Festival in Downtown Calgary
Each year, the restaurant district of 4th Street SW
is closed down for the day to hold this special event
A day kicked off with a parade and followed by
free entertainment, music, performers, buskers...
And plenty of food trucks from all over Calgary
Balloon animal "artist"
I believe he made a little dog here...
Performing for the crowd
Fun inflatable signs
Walking through the crowds
Inspirational cloth wall hangings
Checking out the food trucks
The Happy Truck, "Get HAPPY Here!"
Lot's of tents selling trinkets, clothing, jewelry, etc.
More street views
Cute wallets and coin purses at one of the tents (I
should have bought the brown guy on the far left!)
An amazing musician/singer
Johnnie Et Les Parias = Johnnie And The Outcasts
The Pita Mascot
Separate closed off area for Calgary's New Rock Alternative
Peeking through the fence...
All and all I enjoyed my time at the Lilac Festival. It's definitely a family-friendly
event and the free music and entertainment was fantastic. Plus the huge variety of
unique food trucks was a wonderful way to feature the many food styles and cultures!
