Bagpipes and Sunsets

13 Jul

By: Diva Jenna Ujiye

My co-worker and I have been trying to get video footage at as many events on Ontario’s West Coast as possible. We have been spending some evenings and weekends and have got to see some amazing things and try some very unique things! This past Friday was really great! We headed to the Cove beach in Goderich and  watched as the Celtic Blue Highlanders pipe band piped down the sun.

I am not kidding you, there were hundreds of people at the event! This phenomenon seems to be a Lake Huron thing and it happens every Friday in July and August. We watched families and friends gather all around the pipe band and listen to the music. Many of the children started dancing and running around the band, which was in a circular formation. People travel from all over Ontario, Canada and the world to watch this event, most of the people attending where from out of the area.

After we watched the pipe band for a while we headed over to the beach and watched the sunset, it was so warm outside that people where still swimming in the Lake. What a wonderful end to a Friday evening!

Here is a video of one some of the happenings from the Friday night fun!

Lovin Live Music

14 Mar

Its only a few sleeps away until one of the most exciting days of the year, ST PATRICKS DAY! The day when suddenly everyone is Irish, and drinking in the a.m becomes not only acceptable, but also encouraged! St Patrick’s day is exciting enough on its own, however this year its even more exciting! That evening, Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer Colin James will be playing at the town hall in Bayfield for the Bayfield Concert series! This is huge! Colin James was actually the first concert I ever attended. I was in grade 5 and it was at the Western fair, now a million years later he is still touring across the country with his next stop in Bayfield! This show is going to be insane. Do not miss out on this one! See you all there!

-Kaylie

o and i forgot to mention, he has only won like 6 junos, no big deal!
