23 pictures I took during the Roncesvalles Polish Festival weekend.


During this weekend’s Roncesvalles Polish Festival, High Park Baptist Church had an outreach and awareness tent outside our front door.  It was located between the CanadianArmy recruiting display and a beer tent. I had a blast reaching out for two straight days to our neighbourhood during this lively community event.  The music, food and weather conspired to make a great opportunity to “extend Christ’s freeing love to the spiritually hungry” and meet some new and old friends from the neighbourhoods in the process. I hope you enjoy these 23 pictures.
Excellent Canadian Forces band music. Banner says, "Thank you Canadian & Polish Forces"
Saturday the church was a beehive of activity: Dance studio registration signage and bag pipers in our parking lot. 
Former City Councillor Chris Korwin-Kuczynski aka "KK"
The crowd fills Roncesvalles
Cortney Pasternak, Liberal MPP Candidate w Ryan Hobson

Parade started just south of us
Polish Festivalers made these clothing donations between 12-2pm on Sunday. Thank you neighbours.
2 guys in the outreach tent raising awareness for HPBC's Food & Clothing Ministry. We offered free prayer & New Testaments. Our church would like to have a tent with our name on it. This was a loaner.
You see: Our Daily Bread, ESV New Testaments, contact cards, food & clothing donation signs
Presentation board by Food & Clothing Ministry. The bottles are gourmet cooking oils and wine vinegars for donations.
A good view of our neighbours from the tent.
Our neighbours, the Army Reserves. Nice guys!
Workers building the chapel pause to show off they space to a local family
Cheming is the Director of the HPBC Food and CLothing Ministry. Please say "hi and thank you", if you see him around the neighbourhoods.
Twirling skirt. I loved catching this couple's care free dancing around the streets as Polish music played! Great action shot!
Feeding our troops!
More excellent Canadian Forces band music.
