Booth 2017: Day 3

Another wonderful day at the Canada Booth and the last of this year’s International Festival. The combination of the colourful superheroes and the contemplative black and white didactics about the real, human heroes was a success. We got great compliments about the booth all weekend: eye-catching, educational, fun, well-designed with easy to read panels, and–most important–hosted by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.

Here are a few photos of today’s action at the Booth.

Thank you to our superb volunteers who hosted today: Carol, Caroline, Helen, Frank, Ethan, Paul, and Gary.

 

 

Booth 2017: Day 2

Another great day at the Canada Booth enlightening puzzled visitors who didn’t realize that Superman had a Canadian connection (artist and co-creator Joe Shuster was born in Toronto). More people took time to also look at the true Canadian heroes today. Several were amazed at the diversity of the heroic human on our walls and at their courage, valour and accomplishments.

Thank you to our fantastic volunteers who hosted the Booth today: Gary, Paul, Joe, Jane, Susana, Ian, Donna, Alara, Caitlyn, Nedelka. Karissa, Martin and Caroline!

Booth 2017: Day 1

Hoards of children descended upon the Canada Booth (a tad earlier than anticipated) on this first day of the 2017 Raleigh International Festival. We tricked young and old by switching the names of the superheroes featured in the booth… but many have thus discovered the amazing Nelvana of the Northern Lights and super cool Captain Canuck.

Canada 150 flags, pins, tattoos as well as maple candy and colouring sheets were distributed to the great delight of the masses. See our wonderful volunteers in action!

Many thanks to volunteers Shirley, Tera, Denise, Craig, Dominique, Gary, Paul and Caroline for hosting the Canada Booth today!
