Booth 2017: Day 1

Hoards of children descended upon the Canada Booth (a tad earlier than anticipated) on this first day of the 2017 Raleigh International Festival. We tricked young and old by switching the names of the superheroes featured in the booth… but many have thus discovered the amazing Nelvana of the Northern Lights and super cool Captain Canuck.

Canada 150 flags, pins, tattoos as well as maple candy and colouring sheets were distributed to the great delight of the masses. See our wonderful volunteers in action!

Many thanks to volunteers Shirley, Tera, Denise, Craig, Dominique, Gary, Paul and Caroline for hosting the Canada Booth today!

Canada Booth 2017: Ahead by a Century

The 2017 Canada Booth came out of a bunch of bags and boxes in record time!  We must be getting good at this… 30 minutes to set up the black curtain that’s been known to take much, much longer to hang.  Canadian heroes and superheroes appeared on the walls and incredibly  by 2:30pm we were done.  Ahead by a century, it seemed.

Here are some fun pics of the installation.  Thank you to Gary, Denise and Caroline for setting up and many thanks to the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta for generously supporting this cultural endeavour.
