The Chebucto Community Net
Word On The Street Page


         We're now done at the Word On The Street Street Fair on Spring Garden Road for this year. The event was an overwhelming success, with an estimated 40,000 people in attendance with no small percentage of them coming through the Chebucto tent. Many thanks to all the hard-working volunteers, Information Providers and Chebucto Board members who turned out and pitched in.

         Here's some highlights from the party. Excuse the large picture file sizes; this page was edited on the fly through the day. Thanks to the Eastern Passage CAP site for the loan of their excellent digital camera.

The CCN Tent

The Chebucto tent was in the lawn right next to DalTech across from the Spring Garden Road Public Library.
