#ygkChallenge: Blues Fest

Limestone City Blues Fest, Kingston, OntarioWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Dance your blues away.  Today marks the beginning of one of Kingston’s best known festivals: The Limestone City Blues Festival.  Kingston is one of the few remaining cities whose Blues Fest is still entirely blues and we manage to attract some of the best blues acts from all over the world, not to mention the great local talent the festival features.  Blues Fest brings us three days jam packed with live blues outdoors at Confederation Basin and in pubs, restaurants and clubs throughout downtown.  Whether you’re a huge blues fan or not, there is something infectious about a great blues tune.  I challenge you to get out there and see for yourself.  I bet you can’t keep your feet still.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.
