Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park 2018

Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park 2018

This year I was invited to have a booth at the annual Lethbridge Windy City Canine Rescue Bark in the Park and despite the rain, it was so much fun! So many people came out in support of Windy City Canine Rescue and braved the weather for a hot dog and visiting lots of puppies. A Better Chance Animal Rescue was at the event with their newest litter available for adoption and the puppies loved the attention! One was an escape artist who kept the volunteers on their toes through the entire event. Many Muddy Paws did a fun demo showing off their students’ running, jumping, and tracking skills.

2018 Lethbridge MS Walk

2018 Lethbridge MS Walk at Henderson Lake

I was honoured to be asked to return for my fourth year of photographing the Lethbridge MS Walk, held by the Lethbridge MS Society. This year’s walk was held at Henderson Lake again, giving participants beautiful views of the water and Canadian Geese during their walk. This was probably the warmest year they’ve ever had for the walk and had amazing attendance as a result, including both newcomers and long time participants.

As usual, I had an amazing time photographing the event. The organizers do a fantastic job making sure all participants and volunteers and healthy and looked after. I had a golf cart friend again who sped me around the participants (and around the many, MANY geese at the lake) so we could capture as many moments as possible during the walk and at the festival area before and after.

Lethbridge 2018 Diva Cabaret Drag Show at the Casino

Lethbridge Casino 2018 Diva Cabaret Drag Show for Pride Fest

After a couple years of watching as an audience member, this year I had the privilege of photographing the Diva Cabaret drag show. Each spring the event is held at the Lethbridge Casino in support of Lethbridge Pride Fest and has grown in popularity so much that this year they added two additional performances for a total of four shows (two back to back shows each night). Even with the extra shows, the event was still almost entirely sold out!

The extra drag shows this year allowed for variations in performances and outfits each night. Friday and Saturday each offered a different experience, making it extra fun to photograph throughout the weekend. They even added a few drag kings this time around! I was especially excited to hear two songs that my own dance group has performed, including an intense group performance of “Cell Block Tango” by several of the drag queens.

The show explored ideas of race, diverse relationships, body positivity, and self-expression with lots of comedy mixed in. Everyone involved, both on stage and behind the scenes, did an amazing job!

Night To Shine 2018 in Lethbridge

Night to Shine 2018 in Lethbridge at the Victory Church

Night to Shine is a huge party held for special needs people so they can feel like celebrities! From the moment they enter on the red carpet, they are met by the paparazzi and cheering fans. Once inside, they are treated to complimentary hairdressers, makeup artists, shoe shines, delicious food, and endless dancing. The event is only held in select cities so it was wonderful to have it in Lethbridge for 2018!

Myself and several other photographers volunteered our services for the evening. Once the limo rides (graciously donated by California Dream Limo) started up, I was on limo duty and had so much fun cruising around the parking lot with everyone! Back inside, the dance floor was constantly packed right up until the last song. I loved seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces!

Lethbridge Live Music Performance Photos [Rockuronium]

Lethbridge band photos of Rockuronium

Rockuronium had a special live music performance at a party for many of their friends and peers, and their guitar player treated them to some live band photography! I love how the band gives all the members a time to shine. Despite there being so many people on stage, they frequently took turns singing and rotating members to the front. The band is totally made up of doctors and health care workers and their name is a medical pun – I always appreciate a good pun! :) I loved being able to crash the party and watch them perform.

Be sure to check out Rockuronium on Facebook to see when they’re performing next!

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2017 in Galt Gardens

The last few zombie walks have taken place on Saturdays during wedding season so I’ve missed way too many of them. This year it took place on my first Saturday off! The compromise is that it was late in the fall and it was COLD. Despite the wind, the turn out was pretty great and we all had fun “attacking” the victims who came to watch :)

A huge thanks to Katt Panic for organizing the event this year!
