Anyone who reads my blog posts will know that I try my best to get out and photograph events in and around Thunder Bay. The latest happening in Thunder Bay that I was very much looking forward to was the Craft Revival - Holiday Edition. Surprisingly, this was another event that I never had the chance to make it to before. I may be wrong, but I believe this was the 4 year it has taken place. I really wanted to go to the one that took pace earlier in the year but the timing just wasn’t right. Well, this time around my Anne and I made it out and we had a great time!
This years holiday edition had around 19 venues and over 200 vendors which is amazing. We made to almost every venue. Pretty much every one we went to was jam packed with people too. It was so nice to see such a fantastic turnout. I even had some photographer friends selling some of their work. That is definitely something I will have to do in the near future. Now I just have to print some of my work…
I of course had my camera with me and took photos along the way. I packed extremely light and just brought my Fuji X100F. It’s the perfect walk around lens and not intimidating at all. Plus, it takes pretty darn good photos. The highlight of the day was probably our pitstop at Prime Gelato for an Affogato, which now just learned they offer. If you haven’t had it yet, it’s essentially espresso poured over a gelato of your choice. Simply superb. We plan on going every Saturday until the end of time now.
I think we were downtown for just over 2 hours and it went by so fast and we saw so much. It was a blast talking to lots of the vendors and seeing such talent. I’m amazed at how many artists live in this city. It is very inspiring and I am proud to call Thunder Bay home. I’m already looking forward to the next event this summer. Hopefully I can make it!
