The AGB’s site at the Wheels, Water and Wings street festival was buzzing with activity on Saturday July 5 under a hot and sunny sky, perfect for this year’s Caribbean-related theme of “Hot on Hastings”. Carole and John Kirby kept the samosas and grilled pineapple skewers flying off the BBQ and into the hands of eager customers to the happy rhythms of the Northern Lights Steel Orchestra. Gusty winds kept napkins, paper plates, signs and even umbrellas flying off as well! Roustabout Hugh Monteith collected the errant items, and filled in as food chopper, banker, plate preparer, amateur photographer, and general go-fer. Latecomers were disappointed to learn the delectable offerings were sold out by 1 p.m. 

At the adjacent kids’ tent, budding artists tried their hands at T-shirt painting with Isla Key and Diana Gurley, or driftwood painting with Ingrid Monteith. While clearly enjoying their handiwork, the concentration on their faces was intense as they created their imaginative masterpieces to the approval of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends.  So much fun was had, the painting continued for over an hour beyond the posted closing time.

Thanks to the volunteers for this year’s event in making it a rousing success and fund-raiser for the Gallery.  Based on the reception to this year’s food and fun activities, AGB volunteers will be back at next year’s event with more samosas and more painting opportunities for kids of all ages!b2ap3_thumbnail_IMGP2471.JPGb2ap3_thumbnail_IMGP2476.JPGb2ap3_thumbnail_IMGP2477_20140713-171104_1.JPGb2ap3_thumbnail_IMGP2489.JPG
