Some more of the Jazz Fest

Went back at lunch time to the Jazz Festival - probably for the last time... as I can't go tomorrow :(

I always love the Jazz Festival poster - they come up with some beautiful designs year after year!

Just to show you how big it is - this is lunchtime - at night, the streets are packed with people! It was a small unknown group that was playing and there was still a lot of people for 1 p.m.!

A tribute to Oscar Peterson - a great Canadian jazz pianist who passed away last year.

On another note, this is one thing I love that happens every year too - not too far from work, there is an outside exhibition every Summer on different things. This year, it's about photography through the years!
On one side, there are photos from today...
and on the other side, there are photos from another century!
Today...
Yesterday...
