TASTE of FORT ERIE 2015 attracts New Jobs Businesses Building our Local Economy

the idea girl says

One of the great things about the internet is being able to talk to people from all over the world…

Blogging and being part of a “global blogging community” is even better and I’ll tell you why.

Writing about your ideas for your community, and having a bunch of fans read your stories, and tell their friends, families and acquaintances, and then watching them be implemented, is so exciting!

One of the idea’s we blogged was to “introduce” the world to Fort Erie Ontario Canada – not only by blogging on WordPress, and filming videos for our youtube channels about what to do, see and where to eat, but also allowing the “international tourists” to come to our Town of Fort Erie and have a TASTE of our culture, foods and of course to enjoy some shopping!

I didn’t expect to develop a big fan base here, somehow I did. 🙂 Thanks to all of you for sharing my stories, and ideas and putting them to work *wink*.

It’s great to see how people are beginning to LOVE Fort Erie again! It was so sad three years ago when all we saw was ANGER, disappointment and frustration from the community. Now there’s HOPE for a better tomorrow, not only for all the adults, but even the teen’s are realizing that they will have a better tomorrow if they only believe in themselves.

We are also teaching the younger generation (before they become teens and start thinking about what kind of career they might want to have.) that things can change when you believe in yourself, and in the people around you…

Taste of Fort Erie was fantastic! Our favorite Rock n Roll Music, the Arts, Dance, Drawing, Fun & Games, Food!

They did it all on ONE very SMALL street! – Jarvis ST!

Bridgeburg District is coming ALIVE again.. In baby steps! 🙂

Thanks to all the sponsors and people that made it happen. You made me and thousands of my readers smile…. 🙂

see some of the photos and stories about this event.

I cannot imagine what’s so interesting about smelling other dogs poop bags? lol

I think it’s something to do with the hormone smells in the poo, the dog can tell the breed of the other dog, and what family of pooches it comes from

imagine that… your poop is your DNA identity if you WERE a dog. Ha ha ha ha…

Harry & I drove from fort erie to grimsby ontario canada along the QEW Niagara.  We stopped for lunch at Domino’s on Main St in Grimsby (pics coming) and then to MY SHOCK I see there’s a THRIFT STORE around the corner! lol

I’ve driven this highway for over 40 years and didn’t know it was here! DUHHHHH… I love thrift stores!

 

This one’s amazing because most of it’s patrons are high end so it’s designer fashions in clothing, furniture, tools and toys.. etc.. a little bit of everything.

designer shoes and purses too! In really GREAT shape and the price is RIGHT. 🙂

Here’s our pics from our trip there March 11, 2015.

we turned off Main st to go up the mountain to look for a hiking trail and stopped after I shout “WHAT!!! it’s a thrift store ! OMG they have a BIG store in little town of Grimsby? ha ha.. omg, lets go check it out!” or something like that… Yeah I went nutty when I saw it. LOL

 

So we pull in and out comes my crappy cell phone camera, “gotta take pics and blog this place! for all my thousands of gals and guys that also love to go touring around the Niagara Region in Ontario, Canada for some awesome money saving deals..

there it is!

the little pizzeria on main street were going back to try.  A fella (thanks for your tips when you see us around the Niagara Region) told us they have fab pizza there, so were going to go and try it and I’ll blog it if I like it.  I’m picky so you know if I blog a restaurant or place to eat they have to have good food and great customer service ! 🙂
