Mount Royal Street Fair

Saturday was a beautiful warm sunny day. So I suggested that we go for a walk downtown and go to a street festival that was taking place on Mount-Royal Avenue. It's mainly an arts festival. It was my first time going there and I was surprised by all the people that were there!!
Kids (and adults) having fun painting on the street!



You could try a spinning class - too bad I was wearing jeans - they wanted me to join!! ;)
They were also collecting clothes for the poor.
The night before, some artists had painted on the street - beautiful work of arts!
and of course, SALES!! :)

and on our way to the street festival - saw this beautiful graffiti wall!
and they changed the fountain at Place des Arts - so colourful!

Oh my gosh--it seems like sacrilege to walk on that street art!! I would love that festival--so much to see, and all that color and design. The fountain is awesome. Hope you got lots of shots of everything!!
