Leacock Chairs

Street Art in Orillia to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town (Mariposa)
designs by local artists, Marg Gurr (above) and Laura Carter (below - the juried art award winner)




























These chairs are made of sheet metal and although not cushiony soft, are quite comfortable!

signs
























signs for the food truck festival and the neighbouring restaurants






I usually think food truck fare is slightly overrated, but this truck had the best coffee in the world, bar none
and the trailer is so cute!

trucks

it annoyed me that each time I went to get an unobstructed shot of this mural, there was always something parked in the one space in front of the bit where the pumpkins were under the tree. then I decided that the juxtaposition of these two trucks was a nice addition. so you will have to trust me that the pumpkins* are there.
I also like that the windows on the second floor are evenly spaced and even the a/c units do not detract from the symmetry.

*this past weekend was Port Elgin's Pumpkinfest if you were wondering why there would be pumpkins at the beach.
