BBQ Block Party Hosted by the Rotary Club of Perth on July 22-24 2016

As part of Perth's 200th Anniversary of settlement, there was a ribfest, as well as a car show, and stone carvings. The dust was awful. We need rain. The fair grounds were getting ready for Blue Rodeo, VIP seating, too!



Canadian Stone Carving Festival People could bid on these, in a silent auction. I was tempted!


And the BBQs!


I was tempted... I like onions!


Antique Car Show Isn't this a throwback?!


Then there is the motorcycle. I loved it!


Town was just NUTS!
The car in front was trying to turn left, the guy on the left was pulling out of the bank parking lot. Then, the people on the right were crossing our traffic lane to pull out and go south.


In the evening, Blue Rodeo had a gig. Rob Dyke filmed it.
Blue Rodeo all to ourselves in an intimate setting in Perth. Amazing!#Perth200th#PerthRotary#Hometownpride from Rob Dyke on Vimeo.

what a grand turnout with so many there, but the drone video, gives a superb bird's eye view of it all, Thanks again for sharing from your part of our world.

The town looked exceedingly busy! Those ribfest vendors were no doubt some of the same who were up here a few weeks back on Sparks Street. I always try some.

We just had the first after an eleven year hiatus Logger Sports event here in Powell River. They included a chainsaw carving contest that was amazing. Each carver donated a work to the city. Don't know where they'll end up. Maybe one or more will go into the new library that should be finished by next spring. - Margy
