It was cool evening in October, but under a sheltered area of Evergreen Brickworks it was warming up quick. Inspired by traditions started in Munich, Germany over 200 years ago, the Canadian Cancer Society’s inaugural Oktoberfeast event captured traditional Bavarian celebrations through food, drink and festivities to raise funds for the fight against cancer. I had a blast! And how can you not with a plethora of food trucks, beer and wine vendors, all warmed by bonfires scattered around the gorgeous green space. I get invited to a lot of events but this one really hit home, especially when I found out a portion of the proceeds from this event will help fund a joint initiative between Evergreen Brickworks and the Canadian Cancer Society to develop a sun safety program for elementary school students. I took a bunch of photos to share with you in hopes you will join me next year in the fight against cancer.
