Zombies and Art – Keith’s 365 update
Here we are with the end of October in sight and November looming large on the horizon. It was a busy October for 365kw filled with Oktoberfest, zombies and art. What is it with zombies? Suddenly they’re everywhere. Both Kitchener and Waterloo had zombie walks and THEMUSEUM has a zombie party too!
It’s not even halloween yet.
As for art, October has the Central Art Walk, Artworks Show and the Kissing Bridge Trail Studio Tour. This makes sense. Autumn is a wonderful time for an art walk or a drive though the rolling hills of Waterloo Region visiting artists’ studios.
Oktoberfest, of course is always eventful.
I’m still in BC visiting with my family so I’m missing all of this. Vancouver Island is OK but you really want to be in Ontario in October. Vancouver Island you want to be in in the winter when Waterloo Region is under three feet of snow. But we’re getting lots of exercise hiking in the mountains and walking on the beaches. In BC, life is all about hiking, drinking craft beer and books, or so it seems, and that’s pretty good.
Alasdair is taking care of our real estate business while I’m away. There are always houses being bought and sold. People’s lives go on, they get married, relocate, have kids, downsize, get a new job…whatever, there is always activity in the real estate market. August and September were a little slow in KW. It will be interesting to see if October is down too. I read a report recently that stated that the fall was the best time to sell your house. Personally, I think every year is different. I’ve read that February is the best month to sell your house. Who can you believe and what does it matter, really. This report showed that Kitchener Waterloo had a balanced real estate market. Balance is good.
Back to 365kw business, we have some interesting events coming up at several of our museums and art galleries. We have such great public institutions in Waterloo Region including but not limited to the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, The City of Waterloo Museum and our libraries. They almost always have something free going on for the family, the art lover, history buff…
