Canadian Festival Crowning Glory
The outstanding feature of the four days was the dry stone Bridge. Overseen by Rocktober coordinator John Shaw-Rimmington, the workforce managed to produce this feature in a beautiful setting which had the appearance of having been there for centuries. With a pitched walkway and curved Cedar handrails I am told that this bridge was only the second one built in a public place in Canada for a hundred years. It has a charm which seemed to enchant those who crowded round to watch the final removal of the wooden support from underneath the arch. I believe that everyone involved with the construction should feel very proud. http://www.dswac.ca/
