Today I want to take you downtown to our local festival.
Every year on the third weekend in August Morden puts on
an event called The Corn and Apple Festival.
This draws large numbers of people from the surrounding area.
Tour buses come from Winnipeg,about an hours drive.
Let's start at the east end of town.
Looking east here is the entrance to the Research Station.
The gardens and lawns draw many people every summer.
As we turn to look west,this is the main street in town.
Officially it is called Stephen Street,but locally is known as Main Street.
No rides or vendors are allowed to open until noon on Sunday.
This festival starts on Friday and goes through to Sunday evening. Throughout the weekend there is entertainment on the main stage as well as at some smaller stages.
All my pictures were taken today,Sunday,so the rides are motionless.
the lamp posts all have these lovely baskets of flowers.
The Art Gallery now occupies this building.
Just another view of the clock tower.
This was the scene this morning before the church service began.
On stage to open the morning service was a local group called Glorybound.
A peek at the sound booth.
I had to take this in segments in order to show all of it.
Here is a close-up view the clock.
Some more decorative displays on the old buildings.
It is good to see most of the local churches participating in this service.
We have about six blocks of the main street filled with vendors of every kind.
Some of the side streets are also used.
