On October 6th, 2007, from 10am to 4pm, please join us for the third annual Okto-BEAR-fest taking place in Kitchener, Ontario.  My critters and I, Karen Waschinski (Scratching at the Window), will be there along with some 20 other artists! 

This is the first Saturday of the annual Oktoberfest celebration so there are lots of wonderful things to experience in Kitchener to make a fun-filled day-trip! (Please click on the logo above to get to the official website.)

This year there will also be a Miss Okto-BEAR-fest contest!  Please come and vote for your favorite lady bear!  The winner will be selected by you, the public, and you can view the bears at the Okto-BEAR-fest show and also on September 29th from 10am to 5pm in the Conestoga Mall (on King Street in Waterloo).  All the contestants will be on display and you can enjoy the artistry and imagination that these bears will show off!

So, where will the bears be on October 6th, you ask?  At the Doon Heritage Crossroads in the Hall of Fame, 10 Huron Rd. in Kitchener, Ontario.  Kitchener is about 1 1/2 hours west of Toronto, 35 minutes east of Stratford.  

Using Hwy 401 or the 7/8, turn onto Homer Watson Blvd.  Go along Homer Watson and turn onto Huron Rd.   See the maps below (look for the red star) and if you have any questions, please contact the show's organizer, Chris at chris70@golden.net or 1-519-699-5419.  

There are more maps, the show's details and a listing of all the other wonderful artists that will be exhibiting on the Okto-BEAR-fest webpage, click here

(This map is from the Doon Heritage Crossroads visitor's guide pamphlet.)

The Hall of Fame is the building in yellow.  Admission to the show is $3.00, and parking is free.

We would love to see you there!
