Aurora’s Town Park was packed for yesterday’s Arctic Adventure.
As I took my daughter around to all the activities there were sizeable lines for all the fun activities.
From bouncy castles, facepainting, tubing, outdoor painting, to live music (not that diluted jazz+) and traditional eats (hot dogs and cotton candy) the Town of Aurora continues to showcase how cultural programming can and should be done.
The only disapointments were arriving too late for balloons (so popular they ran out) and more seriously the advertised, and delicious smelling but not available chilli.
Apparently a health inspector had made the rounds and forced the Optimists Club from selling their chilli because, get this, it was homemade.
I doubt there was a huge public health risk by selling chilli that wasn’t made in some industrial kitchen.
Isn’t the whole idea of ‘Family day” to celebrate things that are homemade?
Regardless of the nanny state intervention a lot of smiles were made yesterday and those responsible should feel proud for the contributions they made to Aurora’s culture.
The countless smiles on everyone’s faces yesterday tell me that if Aurora’s Culture has a centre it certainly is in impressively attended and received events like this
This is the type of culture the Aurorans I know are all in agreement on.
