Our Annual Street Party, although a bit soggy, was quite successful. Neighbours came out sporting rain gear and their “Street Spirit Colours”. Due to transitory attendance through the event, it became impossible to declare a street with the “best” attendance. Special mention goes to Gerard and Betty who ensured their Rideau Valley Drive yellow was clearly visible.
Kids enjoyed tattoos, facepainting and an obstacle course race. Team 1 won points for finding creative ways around the “no hands” rule with the water balloons. Team 2 won the race by getting the most water balloons to their bucket and were very patient and helpful with the youngest participants.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
To YOMA volunteers who sold tickets and informed our community about their organization.
To all our neighbours who came out despite the weather.
To all our set-up and tear down volunteers and to Andrew and Brent who barbecued in the rain.
And especially to our Events Director, Denae Moores who did such a wonderful job coordinating refreshments, food, bbq equipment, tents, games, prizes and more!
