Piercing Ken Thoughts: I’ve been going to this display for the past couple of years and I greatly enjoy it based on all the creativity that is showcased by the talented sculptors. You’re going to want to make sure that your mobile device is at maximum charge or your camera is. I tend to bring both of them with me for good measure and to have better offerings for the readers of the website when they see my post about it. I also cannot stress enough on how important it is to bring a few canned goods with you. Why settle for only one can when you are able to enjoy some thirty pieces of art for free. Go to your local market and grab a handful of their branded corn, peas, beans, spinach and maybe even some gravy. Remember that all of this donated stuff along with the products used in the sculpts will be going off to City Harvest charity and immediately be put to use in soup kitchens around this metropolis. That’s all I have to say about the matter so please make it happen and please watch our Facebook and Instagram accounts since I will be posting some stuff over there when I pay my visit in the coming days. See you next time.
