Lebanese Fest fires up grill this weekend

HALIFAX – Sizzling Mediterranean food and free admission. Lebanese Festival organizers have those two aces up their sleeves when competing with Paul McCartney for an audience this weekend.

It’s the ninth year of the event, which attracts many volunteers from Halifax’s Lebanese community.

“We’ve all been here since the beginning of the festival,” said Lorendo, pictured above between Caroline, on left, and Ramza. The three were tending to a grill full of chich taouk and kafta Friday afternoon, just before the onslaught of the after-work crowd.

Kid activities, live music, folk dancing and a raffle are other reasons to attend the festival, which runs until Sunday night at the Olympic Centre at 2304 Hunter Street.

Fog greets Paul McCartney’s trucks

Even the cute Beatle needed flat-bed trucks to get concert gear to the Commons.

HALIFAX – Concert supplies and power generators for next week’s Paul McCartney concert arrived at the North Common on Friday. The 18-wheelers queued up on Cunard Street awaiting their turns to unload. Red, yellow and blue pennants fluttered everywhere. The flags and fog gave the impression that it is 13th-century England and that medieval knights were about to emerge from the Armouries and joust.

Festive pennants and a mysterious fog await Sir Paul McCartney's advance army.
