Mural, music cap Northwood party

Young fans soak up the tunes at the Northwood Street Party.

And just like that, in the span of one day, volunteers painted a permanent street mural at the intersection of Northwood Terrace and Black Street.

Hot weather, sidewalk chalk and whole bunch of art-making helped make the Northwood Street Party a success on Saturday. For a full description of the pavement mural project visit the Facebook page set up by the organizers.

Pavement mural to transform Northwood intersection

An exciting side of the upcoming Northwood Street Party on July 14 will be the painting of a permanent street mural at the intersection of Northwood Terrace and Black Street. The project has the potential to make a regular city street corner feel like a public square.

Congratulations to the neighbours who turned up at several June meetings to create the mural’s design. People who want  to lend a hand painting the mural can do so at the street party. Plus there will be music, a bouncy castle, carnival games and food vendors. A section of Northwood Terrace will be closed to traffic.

For more details, click on the full event poster about the street party or visit the Facebook page that explains the mural project.

Mailboxes that spruce it up

It’s time to open hostilities against the ubiquitous black wall-mounted metal boxes that sully the front of so many homes. After all, Canada Post is hitting a fever pitch delivering Christmas cards and presents. Let’s receive them in style.

Some neighbours take a stand. Their choices of oddball, homemade and hand-painted mailboxes add a refreshing flavour to the street. They’ve jazzed it up for the letter carrier. The mailbox usually occupies a high-profile piece of front siding. May as well make it glow.

Photos were taken, from the top, on North, Charles and Black streets.
