Lilac Festival and a Great Breakfast

Every year in Calgary, the Lilac festival takes over 4th Street. Having heard so much about it year after year, Jime and myself decided to check it out finally.

We took Breakfast at Vendome Cafe  just off 10th St in Kensington.

Some nice window light was coming in

Flowers on all the tables looked quite nice.

Their menu is fairly large and based mainly off of egg and panini items, though we did manage to stick with our gluten-free challenge.

Two poached Eggs on Hash-browns with BACON, so so good.

After devouring our meals we headed off to 4th street. It was packed to say the least!

It was very busy at the Festival

It seems I can't escape photography, no matter where I go.

The size of the festival was really what got me, it was very, very large.

While the sun didn't show up we escaped the rain. We both enjoyed the day, even with our feet hurting.

Loving Spring so far.
