This past weekend downtown Red Deer turned on the festival spirit with Centrefest 2013. Centrefest is in its eleventh year and is still super popular. The crowds were entertained by street performers, magicians, comedians, face painters and many other forms of entertainment. Streets in the downtown core were closed off to allow for the set up of tents housing sponsors, food vendors , and a market place.
We decided to go to the festival on Sunday with plans to spend a few hours there, unfortunately the weather had other ideas. We enjoyed the one performance we saw before the gale force winds and pouring rain roared in (and we also had to walk home in this weather too!). The performance was a little bit of fun, a little bit of magic and a whole lot of banter. Our oldest daughter thought it was the funniest thing ever. We look forward to attending Centrefest in the future……..hopefully on a sunny day.
