Pride Cornwall at Waterfest

From: Paul Aubin, Pride/Fiert Cornwall ~

It’s finally happening!

This Saturday, the Blazing Paddles, Pride/Fiert Cornwall’s team in the Cornwall Waterfest dragon boat competition, will be taking to the waters of the historic Cornwall Canal to compete in the dragon boat race at the first ever Cornwall Waterfest. We’ll be one of some twenty teams participating in this event, which begins at 8:00 am and goes on until 3:00 pm. (The exact time our team will be racing will be made public soon, pending the organizers’ negotiations with 22 Dragons, a boating club in Montral who are helping to stage the race.) We invite all those in Cornwall’s LGBT community, our friends and our allies, to come out this Saturday – and indeed, all weekend long – to partake in Cornwall’s first ever festival which celebrates our riverfront. The festival will take place in the Western part of Lamoureux Park, behind the RCAF Association Wing #424 on Water Street.

When you’re not cheering on the Blazing Paddles, there’ll be plenty of other activities during during the day, including a dunk tank with a host of local personalities who have signed up as willing victims. I myself will be taking to the hot seat at approximately 2:00 pm, so if you’ve ever wanted to throw something at me, here’s your chance.;-) Three balls for five bucks. What a bargain!

The plans for our involvement in this have been in the works for many weeks. We are eternally grateful to those who have signed up for our team. We also thank our official sponsors, the Cornwall Free News and J.C. Wilson. And we especially thank Rony of Shorteez, the Urban Hair Shop for his logistical assistance and recruiting many of the team’s members.

All proceeds raised from Cornwall Waterfest are going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. If you’d like to sponsor our team and make a donation, please click this link and follow the instructions.

    Michels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.
