All the Colours of the Spectrum

Spectrum, the annual downtown summer festival is taking place this year on June 4th, Friday from 4-10PM, June 5th, Saturday from 11AM-10PM, and June 6th, Sunday 11AM-4 PM. All the Colours of the Spectrum is an art event to coincide with the main Spectrum festivities taking place on Thursday, June 3rd, hosted by Inspire Studio & Gallery, Framing and Art Centre, Sandfly Gallery & Gifts and the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre. “Celebrate the sunshine with All the Colours of the Spectrum” is their tag-line for this year. Let’s just hope there’s no snow and rain with that sunshine like last year. Art, food, refreshments, live music are some of the key points of All the Colours of the Spectrum (and the Spectrum in general).

    Something else to check out during Spectrum is the Friends of the Library Used Book Sale. Actually, it’s not just books — there are loads of movies on VHS and DVD, as well as audiobooks and CD’s. The sale goes on Friday from 10-4, and for Saturday’s sale (also 10-4) another 150 boxes of material will be set out.
