Start with tomatoes, add garlic and hot peppers, and garnish with
cilantro! Set fire to those taste buds during Kensington's SUN AND SALSA
and Salsa heats up!
Mayor Bronconnier takes in Calgary's
largest Charity Fundraising Festival,
Kensington's Sun and Salsa!
This year's Sun
and Salsa focuses on the LEAD Foundation and the Agape Hospice.
The LEAD Foundation provides
developmentally appropriate, activity-based, family-focused programs
to support children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
and related disabilities.
Hospice is a home away from home for the terminally ill and
their families. Agape Hospice provides palliative care to people who
are terminally ill. Care is aimed not at curing disease but at maintaining
or improving the quality of life for someone who is dying. Physical,
social, emotional and spiritual care in a homelike, welcoming setting
is given to individuals and their loved ones who have a terminal or
life threatening illness.
Calgary's 'Village in the City', invites you to participate in
the Salsa Tasting Contest between 12 noon and 3 p.m. Purchase
a bag of chips from the LEAD Foundation
for $3, and prepare to judge spicy salsa recipes served
up by teams of Kensington businesses. Agape
will be selling water for $2.
The annual family event takes place along Kensington Road and
10th Street NW, and the Latin flavour will mambo through the neighbourhood
all through the day. Music and dancing will fill the street, and
our great restaurants and pubs promise to provide you with non-stop
Kensington Road and 10th Street will be closed for the day. There's
an LRT stop right at the Kensington Safeway, so public transit
is a great way to beat the crowds. And we're right off the bike
paths so why not ride, blade, run or walk on over to our festival!
