The Word on The Street

I took in a bit of “The Word on the Street” festival this afternoon. The streets around the Lethbridge Public Library were closed off for presenters, booths and FOOD. I ate a hot dog.

Sunday, September 25, 2011 marks the day that Lethbridge joins Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Kitchener and Saskatoon in hosting the national Word On The Street Festival and celebration of literacy.

Hosted by the Lethbridge Public Library, the Lethbridge festival is designed to be a playful, all-ages, spill-out-into-the-street community event with something for everyone to see, hear, do, and of course, eat!

More photos after the jump.

Watch a man as he walks around downtown talking

Here’s a mostly-boring walking tour of historic downtown Lethbridge. If you listen closely at 5:00, Ted refers to the Henotic building as the "fucking #1 fire hall." He must really like it! Also, the guy at 6:30 has a nice strut. Now please tell me I wasn’t the only one who kept looking at his …

It’s Historic Lethbridge Week!

This week celebrates the people and stories of our city, featuring concerts & exhibitions, film screenings, kid events, lectures & literature and other special events. The theme is the dirty 1930s.

Edit: Stylish & Sustainable Shopping
