    Looking ahead to Festitalia (September events), the grape stomp ( @torontogal12 ) will be at Fortino's Main West (near McMaster University) in the morning and at Fortino's Fiesta Mall (Stoney Creek) in the afternoon on Saturday September 26. http://www.festitalia.ca/events

    Today's Hamilton Spectator has a list of fall fairs (though some are summer fairs) in the GO section. If someone can find the link online, please post it (I tried Local/What's On/Community-came across old fair listings from other years).

    The Hamilton Community papers will have a Winona Peach Festival supplement (event is on the last weekend of August). Eastgate Square's Customer Service area had stacks of the Stoney Creek News, so I took a copy-thanks!

    Six Nations has its fair this weekend. www.sixnationsfair.com Today's the last day to register for the singing competition. http://www.sixnationsfair.com/singing-contest.html

    Hamilton Beer Festival starts this afternoon on Jackson Square's rooftop. $25 for a ticket. Maestro Fresh Wes is in the musical lineup today too! View magazine has a write-up on the man behind the festival in this week's issue.

    Teams of four can enter the Festitalia grape stomp at either Fortino's location. Article in the community paper:

    The morning grape stomp was at Mall Rd-for some reason, I read it as Main St. W. and asked staff where the setup was because I saw nothing in the parking lot. It was confirmed that the stomp was on the Mountain.

    Upside-the Hamilton Kinsmen were selling tickets for $250 Fortinos gift card in support of Ronald McDonald House, so I bought 3. Shopping spree sounds good to me.

    BTW, the McMaster Museum of Art talk in the afternoon on the Book of Hours restoration work was enlightening-the terminology, images of some pages before/after restoration, the analysis of media on the pages. Some members of the audience were into calligraphy or book restoration, so the Q&A session was illuminating as well.
