I had a fun time this past week wandering around AVEFEST 2015 on Alberta Avenue. There were parachute games, free food, nail whacking, more free food, water balloons, snakes and ladders, marshmallow creations, stilt walking and did I mention more free food!
Even Tinker Bell made an appearance, so it must have been magical.
And as our emcee often reminded us “It’s all free!”
Great job Aaron and April Au and your team!
There was also kite flying, which inspired this poem.
There is a song you bring to me
A melody of community
Of children laughing, playing fair
Of joy, Of love
From way up there
Tethered by a single thread
You blink and wink and nod your head
As seagulls wonder who you are
This tailed invader from afar
The circle opens wide
One more child can step inside
You see in this euphoric sight
Abundant community taking flight!
