I have to tell the story of how we ended up go-kart racing this weekend. On the first Friday of each month, Annapolis Royal celebrates with 'First Friday' an evening where there the shops stay open later and there is free entertainment around town. My parents were here last week, so even though it was raining, we stopped by to check out the fun. My neighbour, Dan, owns a photography studio in town and he pointed out two contests that were going on that night- the local newspaper had a 'match the photo game' where you had to find photos in the paper that were taken in local shops. Write down where each photo was taken and you win a prize. The second contest was a name draw for a beautiful print from Dan's shop. So mom and I put our names in the draw then set off finding the photos in different stores. And sure enough at the end of the evening I had won, not one but both contests!! It was quite hilarious. I don't think anyone else completed the newspaper contest and only 2 people had their names in for the photo, so my chances were pretty good - but it was a great small town moment none the less! And the prize from the newspaper included a bunch of gift certificates for things around town including a free go-kart race at Action Jax!
