Why We're Hanging Up MeFest

As many of you know, we decided on for-going our Spring MeFest due to the saturation of consumer shows created in the style of our event. With the same reasoning we are hanging up MeFest altogether. We feel that there is now an over abundance of small business shows, and it continues to be more and more difficult to differentiate ours from the rest in this area. We came to this decision after taking a long look at why we began MeFest and we could no longer feel the same enthusiasm for it as we have in the past.


We came to the realization that what we really love is volunteering at events, and brainstorming in the creation of events. So although MeFest is being retired for now, perhaps down the road if we see an opportunity for it, there is always a chance to refresh and revamp the event.

Those2Girls will continue to be the energetic tiara-wearing duo that is always there to help.  As always we will continue to be involved in our local community and will always look for ways to challenge ourselves.


Thank-you for supporting our past seven MeFest events and look forward to connecting with you soon

MeFest #7 THIS SATURDAY Oct 1, 2011

It will be great to see YOU!

This Saturday we're holding our 7th MeFest - A Celebration of YOU!

We are so thankful for the support of this great group!  Where else can you find 400 wonderful people in such a fun place?  We've got lots of great things planned this year.

Want a some hints about what you'll find?  Does your family like LEGO ROCKBAND or perhaps posing for fun PHOTOS? That's just the start of all the great things you'll see.

SO go grab a re-usable bag put some Food Bank donations in it & head to The Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex Saturday Oct 1, 2011. (it will also save you $2 on admission)
Once you arrive unload your non-perishable items into our Food Bank Bin then use your shopping bag to fill up on ** FREEBIES ** from all our great vendors.

Meet You At MeFest !

Meet You At MeFest



Here is some simplified directions to MeFest taking place Saturday April 9, 2011

Take note that Mapquest is not right, but with this you will get there.

First off is the Directions for local & underneath is the Directions for our out of town visitors
--------------

HERE'S THE DIRECTIONS....If you are coming from Kitchener take the expressway to Bridgeport Rd cut off, then go right off the cutoff, it is a one way street, stay to the lanes on the right. You'll go past a Zellers & the road splits a bit, stay in the right lane, you'll pass Uptown Waterloo-the name of the Road then changes to CAROLINE ST, still stay on that. Get in the very right lane. When you get to Erb St turn Right & then IMMEDIATELY you'll make another right (you'll see the big electronic sign that says WAT. RECREATION COMPLEX)-you're now on Father David Bauer Dr, you'll go around a bend & you will see the Rec Complex come up on your left)

-------------

If you're coming from 401

If you come in the 401 West then take exit #278 to Kitchener Waterloo which is Highway 8. As you drive more lanes will be added to the right of you. Stay in the lane 2nd to the right. You will then come to the exit Highway 85 to Waterloo, if you're in the 2nd to the right lane this is perfect. Take that ramp.

Once you've merged onto the expressway, get over until you are in the lane 2nd to the left, then you are heading for Waterloo,

From there...

take the Bridgeport Rd cut off, then go right off the cutoff, it is a one way street, stay to the lanes on the right. You'll go past a Zellers & the road splits a bit, stay in the right lane, you'll pass Uptown Waterloo-the name of the Road then changes to CAROLINE ST, still stay on that. Get in the very right lane. When you get to Erb St turn Right & then IMMEDIATELY you'll make another right (you'll see the big electronic sign that says WAT. RECREATION COMPLEX)-you're now on Father David Bauer Dr, you'll go around a bend & you will see the Rec Complex come up on your left)
