Our annual Block Party was a great success again. Under a warm September sun well over 200 neighbours met and shared a yummy pot luck dinner. The kids took over the pavement with delight and were busy jumping in a neighbour's bouncy castle, having their faces painted and staging a dance party. Cheryl took a commanding lead in the egg and spoon race, and Mitchel and Abbigail won the covetted 'jelly bean' counts. It all ended with a visit from the Vancouver Fire Department and an epic water gun battle, with many soaked children.

Come one, come all to the 3rd annual Apple Press Festival. Participants try their hand at crushing, grinding, and pressing apples. In addition, there are activities like an apple home-run derby, a pressing competition, and old-time games like corn-hole and juggling.The festival aims to bring the community together not only to celebrate the harvest, but to roll up their sleeves and actively participate in it. The Press Fest raises awareness of the great potential of local apples as a readily-available nutrient source, sweetener, fermenting ingredient, and all-around fantastic fruit.

I can say without hesitation that this is the one of the most successful events I've ever produced (in over 25 years of doing this kind of work). Although I will happily take whatever credit comes my way, I believe that the crux of our success lay in doing the right thing at the right time in the right place with -and for- the right people. New Westminster is that very rare modern city that is also a true community. People come together, help one another out, and celebrate together in a way that seems the stuff of old nostalgic movies....and it's genuine.
