At 2 pm come to the corner of Gore and E. Cordova, or stop outdoors in the surrounding neighbourhood and listen for the ringing of the bells from St. James’ Anglican Church. This is a special presentation by St. James’ for the Heart of the City Festival and for the beginning of the Oppenheimer Park Day of the Dead Celebration. “The bells at St. James”, with a full octave range, were cast in 1937 in Loughborough, England. Of the eight bells, the tenor bell, which weighs two tons, bears the inscription, “Sound, sound the glorious Gospel, to the praise of God, and to the honour of all whose words and deeds have proclaimed it in these parts, 1881-1936’’, and so continues sounding to this day. This is the bell that’s heard tolling, while all the bells together play for special occasions. For more info go to: http://www.heartofthecityfestival.com
