Island Hopping Tour - Victoria

The Carnival Band played two gigs in Victoria on Saturday.

A big fan

The first gig, in Centennial Square, was fundraiser for the Canadian Red Cross


The second gig of the day was at Logan's Pub. Since it didn't start until after my bedtime there are no official pics. Anyone who took shots from Logan's Pub is welcome to contribute them to the flickr pool.

Except for the two hours of speeches.

Tara and Simmah. One minute they're deadly serious …

… and the next they're just goofing' off

Daisy takes this band stuff seriously

100,000 Hits

The 3,550 one day spike was the day after Pride 2010

I never imagined that my flickr pool would ever have 100,000 views. The fact that it's seen that much activity in 18 months is incredible.

99% of the photos in the pool are shots of The Carnival Band.

Here, in no particular order, are 5 of the most viewed images. Some shots don't include carnies but they were all taken at Carnival Band gigs.
