Rush plays Copps Coliseum

Those classic Canadian rockers, Rush, played to a packed house at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton Saturday night. Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart proved that, like all the other rock bands that refuse to fade quietly into the night, they can still rock with the best of ’em.

Heritage Days

 

Each June, the town of Ancaster celebrates Heritage Days, doing all those things small town folks do to celebrate – a parade, fieworks, good food, fun times. I had a chance yesterday to take in the annual parade, and even better, the annual soap box derby. Go fast, kids – downhill. -Barry Grayheritage parade dust heritage parade eyeball heritage parade marshall heritage parade nap heritage parade soapbox twins heritage parade soapbox1 heritage parade soapbox2 heritage parade squirt heritage parade sucker heritage parade top hat heritage parade watchers
