Dear Ed­i­tor, Food­fest 2018 was a great suc­cess and the or­ga­niz­ers at Be­yond 21 are no doubt pleased and grate­ful with the re­sponse. I want to send the grat­i­tude right back to them though. How­ever much they gained – and I hope it was a lot, they gave so much more than they could pos­si­bly have re­ceived. By 10 a.m. they had ev­ery­thing ready, vol­un­teers in place, food trucks cook­ing and a street full of artists, crafters, mu­si­cians, dancers, small busi­ness en­trepreneurs dis­play­ing their wares and ser­vices, and thanks to city crews, enough pic­nic benches on the side­walks to turn Pitt Street into some­thing be­tween a city fes­ti­val and a coun­try fair.

Big thanks to Be­yond 21 and their in­domitable di­rec­tor Jane Maclaren. You turned Pitt Street into the place to be from 10 a.m. till 8 p.m. and gave the city a chance to en­joy the best com­mu­nity mee­tand-greet since last year’s Food­fest. Thanks for the party and thanks to all the in­di­vid­u­als and groups that kept the people com­ing, the busi­nesses hop­ping and the city en­ter­tained all day long.

Elaine Mac­don­ald, Coun­cilor, city of Corn­wall
