Hall fills with magic

The Midway Community Association sponsored award-winning magician Leif David for a show in the community hall last Saturday.

Magician Leif David had assistance from the Queen and the King (check out the sideburns) during his show at Midway Community Hall on Saturday afternoon.

Magician Leif David started doing illusions when he was eight years old and today, at age 28, he performs over 200 events per year— 70 of them during the busy summer season alone.

The Kelowna-based magician says that while the audience is being entertained he is also being rewarded by watching people’s reactions and expressions.

The Midway Community Association brought his magic show to the Midway Community Hall on Saturday afternoon. Before his show he mingled with the Kettle River Day crowds and showed off a few samples of his wizardry.

The next event the Midway Community Association is planning is an old time family picnic in the park on Saturday, Aug. 9, starting at 5 p.m. in the James G. Mc- Mynn Municipal Park. There will be games and relays for all ages beginning at 6 p.m.

The evening will end with a showing of the movie E.T. under the stars —start time approximately 9 p.m. Everyone in the community and surrounding areas are welcome to join the fun!
