This week is Rock 'N August in St. Albert. Rock'n August 2013 will celebrate its 17th year of operation as the finest festival of Cars and Music in Western Canada and the City of St. Albert's third largest annual event. A number of years ago, the Cosmopolitan Clubs of St. Albert, Edmonton and Sturgeon wanted to create a fundraiser for Diabetes Research and Education. They decided that classic cars and the sounds of the fifties and sixties was the perfect mix and Rock'n August was born. With the support of the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce and the St. Albert Cruisers Car Club, this small, fun-filled event has turned into an international classic car display showcasing over 600 extraordinary automobiles.
Tonight was the street dance held in downtown St. Albert by City Hall. One of the highlights of the evening was the music of The Classics, a band that has its roots in the Nomads - a band from Joanne's and my memories and the Kit Kats.
As we were leaving my place to walk downtown, we were joined by my friend Pamela.
As we walked, we enjoyed the parade along the route of classic cars and trucks that were in town for the event.
Three hours of wonderful 50s, 60s and 70s music!
