It's been a while since our last update, and I know you B.C. cats are intrigued by the title of this post, but I've got a little something to brag about first: Yesterday the Winnipeg Free Press featured a photo of none other than the Flaming Trolleys in their front-page item about Sunday's 7th Annual Walk for Mother Earth!
Everyone had a great time, and the weather and turnout were awesome! We even ended the walk with a nice ambient Trolley jam at the Forks. Here's some video of us getting warmed up in Central Park before the walk:
This coming Saturday (the 28th), the Trolleys will be taking part in the Food for Folks Fundraiser which starts at 6pm at the Ukrainian Labour Temple (591 Pritchard Ave). Not only will there be egregious amounts of dancing, but the profits will be reinvested into food security and urban agriculture projects in Winnipeg's North End neighbourhoods. Don't miss it!
And lastly, our plans are rapidly coming together for a little BC tour in August! The Trolleys will be visiting the Artswells Festival of All Things Art in Wells, BC before moseying over to the Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo to round out the journey.
How excited are we about all this news? Well, we are Trolleys so we're always excited. But on a scale of 1 to 10 (with an 11.987 being the typical Trolley excitement level at any given moment), I'd say we're about a 26.754 on the excitement scale! In other words, we're pretty stoked!
