We had a Sunday off this September 8th and in a mad scramble to soak up the last rays of summer, we made a plan to go support and sponsor the Pin-up Pageant for this year's annual Chilliwack Garlic and Music Festival!
As soon as we pulled in to the lot, we could hear the treble-soaked rockabilly riffs floating over the corn maze and immediately knew that this was bound to be a blast. The smell of a vast array of garlicky goodness, the sweet, sweet musical stylings of Vancouver's own Swank, and the sight of some of the Lower Mainland's most beautiful pin-up babes were an assault on the senses to say the least! After greeting our lovely friends who were representing Bonerattle Talent, we quickly grabbed some food and staked out our perfect viewing spot for the pageant! After a blur of of pompadours, victory rolls, adorable dresses, flirty, fluttering lashes, pouting red lips and super sexy strutting... the winners were announced and we couldn't be happier to see some of our favorite girls with tiaras in their hair and huge smiles on their gorgeous faces!!
As for the garlic bit...we may have missed the direct connection but it sure was fun (and tasty) and it helped bring a lot of Chilliwack locals who may not have otherwise known about the growing community that exists right in their city! Sometimes, when we get a bit wrapped up in our own tiny worlds, we tend to forget what an amazing community we belong to and it's events like this that help bring us closer together and realize what wonderful people we have supporting this community and reaching out to embrace people who are eager to join us!
