Formal procession of the form.

While Chris and I film the event , Danny, John, Ben, Jason, Bill and Karak carry the first form into position and place it on the wooden beam base (complete with fox wedges) over the stone foundation of the double arch bridge. The added music of Jean-Babtiste Lully made it seem like a real ceremony.

The pre-festival volunteer build this week near Montreal at Rigaud Quebec is going marvelously. During the Festival of Stone, Oct 4th to 8th, we hope to complete this the first bridge of its kind in Canada and remove the two forms on the Sunday afternoon.
