    Here is a LED Light Band Playing out front of the False Creek Community Center:




    And here are the Vancouver Morris Men singing a Xmas Greeting Carol Song that they wrote themselves:




    I stayed for about an hour to watch some of the Entertainment and then headed off to get back Home in time to get some rest for the next days Work.

    Awens to All:

    Went to the Annual Secret Lanterns Winter Solstice Festival last night.

    First, I went to Meetup with a Druidistic Devotee whom I have been going out with for the past year at a nice little Restaurant and had a nice late Lunch together. She had to go off to do a Meetup with her Brother so for the next few hours, I walked about the area of Cambie and Broadway taking Pictures of Xmas Trees.

    Then I went to Leg-In-Boot Square and Meetup with the Winter Solstice Festival Procession.

    Here is the Procession as it made its way along the Sea Wall Walk going toward Granville Island and the False Creek Community Center:



    And here they are arriving at the False Creek Community Center:



    While the Crowd was listening to a group of Morris Men Entertainers doing their Sing Song, I rushed into the Community Center so that I could get a Good Seat for the Nights Entertainment.

    Here is the Stage:



    And the Act I stayed to watch was the Morris Men. Here is a Picture of them doing their Stick Dance:




    After watching the Morris Men doing their Act, I decided I had enough Winter Solstice Entertainment for the Night and made my way Home.

    You might Ban Christmas but You Can Not Ban Winter Solstice.

    Winter Solstice happens whether you Want It or Not!

    Awens & Happy Winter Solstice To All!!!


    Going Downtown to the Classic Restaurant 'Old Spaghetti Factory' for Lunch then do a Walkabout of Downtown Vancouver taking as many Xmas Tree Photos that I could find.

    Then at about 5:00pmish or so, start making my way to HR McMillan Planetarium Gathering Point for the Lanterns Procession to the False Creek Secret Lanterns Winter Solstice Festival.

    Awens to All:

    After getting to Downtown Vancouver, I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory and had a nice Lunch. Their Food is so Delicious and Fairly Priced.

    Then I did a Bus Tour of the Downtown taking Pictures of Xmas Trees that I came upon.

    Here is the Big Tree at Woodward's Plaza:




    The Harbour Center Lobby Tree:




    When I got to Davie & Burrard, I found that where there used to be a Shell Gas Filling Station and Convenience Store, there is now a Community Garden:




    There was a Sign up saying that the Property Holdings Company that owns the Property has allowed Community Gardening on the Property until they get their Finances and Planning Organized to Redevelop The Site.

    Good Of Them!

    Awens to All:

    After my Bus Tour of Downtown Vancouver and the Kitsilano where I went to High School, I made my way down to the HR McMillan Planetarium Gathering Point for the 2019 Winter Solstice Secret Lanterns Procession.

    I was able to get a Picture of the Xmas Tree in the Planetarium Lobby:




    And here is the Gathering Point Procession Leader:




    She was Native Aboriginal who got the Parade Started by Beating Her Drum.

    At 6pm, we set off make our way to False Creek Community Center.
