It’s Your Fes­ti­val over­looked

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Canada’s 150th

I read about Mayor Fred Eisen­berger pro­mot­ing Canada’s150th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion to be held at Bayfront Park with food trucks and big en­ter­tain­ers. Shame.

Folk Arts Hamil­ton (It’s Your Fes­ti­val) have been cel­e­brat­ing and show­cas­ing Hamil­ton di­verse cul­ture, food and arts for more that 40 years, do­ing the best they can with mea­gre funding from the city and help from vol­un­teers.

Why the two venues on the same week­end? Have the food trucks and en­ter­tain­ment the fol­low­ing week­end at Bayfront Park so Hamil­to­ni­ans have some­where to go to con­tinue cel­e­brat­ing. De­nia Henry, Hamil­ton
