We arrived in the Cagneys plaza to find ample spots in the asphalt lot. An incredulous line snaked out from the nearby Tim Hortons, from which I had intended for no other than use of their grimy washroom facilities. Striding along Queen Street, we made our way towards the Streetsville Village Square, catching sight of some of the festivities along the way.
Nearing the area, brief spurts of fireworks were witnessed against the gradually dimming sky. Our final destination was the Vic Johnston Community centre, where an ice cream truck and many more event participants had readied themselves, the latter on lawn chairs for optimal comfort.
Leading up to the day was a forecasted thunderstorm. As such, I had hoped for an absence of precipitation and thunder, at least until fireworks had concluded. Thankfully, Mother Nature was in our nation's favour: we were blessed with dry grounds and balmy breeziness.
he second sigh of relief came raindrops began to fall on the windshield, just as we queued for plaza departure.
