Here in Hamilton, there are many of us who love the old beauty of the downtown core.  For years it lacked funding and interest, but thankfully, attention is finally being paid to an area that well deserves it.  James Street North in Hamilton is full of vintage shops, media stores, pubs, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries.  Every second Friday evening, they hold "Art Crawls" where the local businesses stay open until 11pm or later, and galleries feature different artists.  My sister-in-law and her best friend own the sweetest little shop, White Elephant, which features the most amazing and creative window displays at each art crawl.  Also, don't forget to check out and follow their blog, Love It A Lot.

This year Art Crawl is expanding and holding their 3rd annual Super Crawl, which will be taking place on Saturday September 10th from 1pm-12am.  A huge section of James Street North will be closed off for a free evening of art and music.  Two stages will be set up with bands such as: Broken Social Scene, Junior Boys, Said the Whale, Dinosaur Bones, Young Rival and Monster Truck

What is also exciting, one of my best friend's is going to be debuting his new company, Food Troubadour.  He will be making up smoked pulled pork sandwiches and coleslaw, and even if pulled pork isn't your thing; don't forget to stop by his tent to fill out a ballot to win gift bags, or a gift basket.

Not only will Super Crawl be taking place on September, but also the Canadian Country Music Awards Fan Fest just up the street at Jackson Square, and the Locke Street Festival just a short transit ride away. So Come out on September 10th and for some free fun, and support local artists, shops and musicians!
