CelticFest is on NOW (and has been since Wednesday, incidentally.)
I have to say, being able to attend two free concerts on my lunch hour from the day job was really a nice treat. On Thursday I saw Stephanie Cadman and yesterday it was Kinship. These free concerts are part of CelticFest Vancouver and it is happening right through the weekend. Looks like tonight’s going to be packed with all kinds of great musical entertainment. Tomorrow is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade with all the bagpipes you could ever want. My co-worker, Terry, will be there playing the pipes starting at 11:00 on Davie & Howe and hiking all the way down to Granville and Drake. But don’t take my word for it, check out the parade map here. I’m not so good with reading directions and street maps. Yikes.
Sadly, tomorrow I’m going to be part of a Diva Race that I haven’t even trained for. Hence, I’ll be walking. Slowly. I doubt I’ll make it in time from Jericho to the parade. But, I will be there if some kind of fitness miracle takes place for me in the next 24 hours.
Also, I learned from Kinship yesterday that “Oh ye cannae shove yer grannie aff the bus”. So please don’t. You’re brother’s okay, but not your grannie. Please enjoy the Celtic Fest and the bus responsibly.
