A Saturday in Stratford, Ontario and dinner at Fellini's Italian restaurant

Gazebo in Shakespearean Gardens in Stratford

Yesterday (June 24, 2017), I attended the induction ceremonies at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in  St. Mary's Ontario.  I try to get there every June.  It's a must for Canadian baseball fans. Since Vladimir Guerrero was one of the inductees this year, there were many Montrealers there.  Afterward I visited Stratford, Ontario, located in Perth County in southwestern Ontario.  Stratford is the home of the popular Stratford Festival, an annual celebration of theatre.

I dined at Fellini's Italian restaurant, a well-known eatery in the city.  There were many festivities going on in Stratford that day, including a rib fest.  I also took a stroll through the Shakespearean Gardens along the Avon River. The only disappointment was that the river was rather muddy, I assume from all the rain this spring.

Fellini's, dedicated to famed Italian film director Federico Fellini, is my favourite restaurant in Stratford.  I dined there, on the patio.
