THERE WAS A DEFINITE DRIZZLE and downright downpour at times on Saturday, June 18, in South Surrey, BC. The festival at Kwomais Point Park coupled with the annual Ocean Park Day celebrations at the nearby Village Center seemed to bring on the inclement weather. Life amid the drops is typical so we were not discouraged from having a good time.
The rain-washed forest gathered people from all over the neighborhood. The spatter could be heard but barely seen on the tall canopy of fresh leaves and evergreen branches surrounding the tents.
There were few umbrellas and only a few people bothered to cover their heads with hoods.
Some sat on dampened chairs. Most enjoyed the entertainment while standing.
There were screams of glee at the Village Center where children lined up and waited to sit in a seat that whirled upside down inside a Spaceball.
Some were eager to scale the mountain under a curtain of gray sky.
There was a barbecue, traditional cotton candy and popcorn. Tasty bits overflowed ...
onto the street and got soaked along with the celebratory decorations. The sun, of course, did not make even a token appearance until the following day when all the rides, activities, chairs and food had been put away.
