It was somewhat of a last-minute decision to go. I had given it some thought earlier in the week but when it came time to get ready, I wasn't really in the mood. However, I gave Big Brother a call and it turned out he and his offspring were already at Sir Winston Churchill Square; so, we threw on our coats, grabbed some mitts and headed up the hill.
Big Brother's trying to look his most gangsta. Sadly, father of two, it doesn't work on you. Despite the man-purse, he's still pretty cool in my books.
The official city Christmas tree (before light up) and Mr. Churchill keeping on an eye on all the out of control smoking teenagers who frequent the square.
And after the big turn on by 3rd term Mayor Stephen Mandel and some fat guy in a big red suit. They decided to go with a green and gold theme due to the Grey Cup being held in Edmonton this year.
Fireworks. You can JUST see the tops of the niece and nephew's heads as they dance with delight at the flashy booming lights.
I am so disappointed that this shot turned out so grainy. I love it. Next time, the battery will be charged...
