Photos taken from the Mateel site.
Too bad the SAF publicity doesn't capture the flavor of the whole event, morning til night.
This collection of photos was created during the 2006 festival. The MCC has copies of the pictures in these galleries. I guess they think that the ones they are currently advertising with more closely suit the type of show they are promoting.
I like the way we look in photos... see you at the fair
- black and white men in the 1st photo
- white, black and maybe hispanic men in the 2nd photo
- a black man in the 3rd photo
- hispanic, black and white men in the 4th photo
What I don't see are any women.
Thanks, Kim. Maybe the Mateel can learn a little PR lesson from this.
I'm usually home well before dark.
For my money the summer arts fair is the best family event of the year. Fun, sun, people watching, food, shopping, music into the night. Reasonably priced, easy in and out and no overly important staff with 15 laminates stapled to their chest. I'm there!
So you think it was the white faces which provoked the comment?
I've got some Shelter Cove property to sell you. You can get water to it. Honest!
I'll be there. Gonna pay the price for admission I would have used at ROTR.
Yeah with the sliding scale you can pay the same as you would at RotR (if it existed)
Listen Omar, as a person who really enjoys his porn, I have to say that the MCC website is nothing like a porn website, after all pornsites make money and make us want to get screwed, the MCC site doesn't make money it just lets us know how screwed we are.
at 12 bucks a head, you better have a small family if you plan on purchasing any of the items they have for sale. after all you include food and a drink and you are shelling out 25 bucks each and then the teenagers come a running because they found some tottally cool dodad they cannot live without until tomorrow am when it is tossed into the closet for eternity. I guess now I have to stay untill the bitter end because the band is sooo cool we have to hear the last song. just in time to find out that the last shuttle to town is leaving and we are still looking for young billy who found out that his new friends will buy him beer in exchange for the weed he stole from my stash can. oh I will be there, at the beer booth sucking down high priced ales hoping the jack booted park rangers don't bust my ass when I sneak down by the river to toke up.
