Happy Canada Day Everyone! I took a trip down to the HAMMER today, to celebrate Canada Day and the “It’s Your Festival” at Gage Park in Hamilton Ont. This event is put on by the Hamilton Folk Arts Heritage Council. This organization promotes ethnic awareness and the diversity that Canada welcomes in everyone.

This event had many vendors from far and wide, a midway for everyone, music for all ears, and of course food vendors. I always enjoy walking around these events, just to see all the different cultures around me. I love learning about different cultures after all, we are all unique in our own way. The smorgasbord of cuisine always gets my taste buds tingling, I look for that one place that is just unique enough to grab me, and I found it. Sure you have your regulars hot dogs, French fries, pizza, but when my eye caught the Germania Club of Hamilton I had to check it out. A warm welcome, and fine dressed volunteers all dishing out authentic German meals.

Sausage on a bun, Sauerkraut, & potato salad. What I thought was fantastic, I ordered Schnitzel on a bun, I received a crispy tender and flavorful pork schnitzel with a side of homemade sauerkraut. It was perfect and served in a frisbee “HOW COOL” & a great way to advertise this club. I savoured every bite. DANKE DIR!!!
