For as long as I can remember, the Canada Day long weekend meant one thing in Hamilton - It's Your Festival!
Gage Park, a mere 10 minute walk from my house, hosts the anywhere-from-3-to-5-day festival that showcases the best in (through the years): tasty foods, rides, skeeball, jewelery with yin yangs, concert photos and bible quizes.
In other words, perfection.
It's Your Festival (along with Festival of Friends in August) were hands down the absolutely highlight of the summer for adolescent me.
This is actually a few years past adolescence - the summer I was 22 and just days before I chopped those dreadlocks off.
