Thank you to everyone who came to our 2nd Annual Waterfront Festival. What a wonderful turnout! Thank you to the volunteers, staff and all that took part. The waterfront was a happening place. Here is a sampling of photos from the day.
Our summer students all decked out in 1940s era outfits.
Some of the crafts people.
More vendors and the fire trucks!
The CN Dining Car has been safely delivered to the tracks to the south of the building at the Waterfront Heritage Centre . On Monday, August 17 just before 11, the crowd awaited the arrival of the new addition to the site.
First came the trucks or wheels back in June.
Then on July 22nd the CN dining car made its way from Keswick to the former Derby Township site where work would be done to the exterior of the car – sandblasting and painting.
On August 17, the CN dining car made its way to the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre. It came down 10th Street West hill.
It had to navigate around the corner at 1st Avenue West.
The cranes had to prepare to hoist the eighty-five foot dining car on to the trucks (wheels) that were already in place.
The spectators watch with bated breath and their cameras at the ready to take photos of this historic event.
The car is being hoisted on to the trucks.

Thank you to Wayne and the operators of the equipment.
